STARBASE is a five day STEM-based academy in which students collaborate to explore various fields of science and mathematics. The students use the Scientific Method to conduct experiments in chemistry and physics, make observations, and analyze data through graphing and comparison to draw conclusions about the world in which they live. They also make use of technology in the form of a high profile CAD program and 3-D printing. Students are challenged to utilize the knowledge they gain to engineer unique solutions to real world issues.
STARBASE CT offers week long programs (25 hours) available for groups up to 25. The curriculum is designed to help students explore the STEM fields in a hands-on way. Activities include engineering challenges, chemistry experiments, learning about Newton's Laws of Motion, programming robots, using CAD (computer aided drafting program) to design vehicles, an International Space Station (ISS) and a model of the science lab from the ISS. Students print their models on 3D printers to take home. The program is geared to 6th grade science standards and is free. Must have a group of at least 20, but no more than 25 to participate.
