Summer Program

Summer 2021 Update

In January and early February, the STARBASE Minnesota team will be hard at work developing options for our summer programs that we will conduct with our participating partners, whether onsite at STARBASE, if allowable, or live programming via a digital interface with STEM kits and offsite rocket launch, or some combination.  Registration for summer will be later than the normal mid-February time frame in order to have the best, most relevant information possible for all involved.  Please check back mid to late February for more information.  

Also, please note that the 133rd Airlift Wing of the MN National Guard, where STARBASE is located, will be celebrating its 100th Anniversary this summer with exhibits planned at the Mall of America starting in June, at Concourse C at the Mpls/St. Paul Airport, and at the 133rd Airlift Wing with a STE(A)M hangar and flyover events.  Please stay tuned for upcoming events in the months ahead.                  

The STARBASE Minnesota Team

Engineers build the world around us. At STARBASE we build engineers.

Our summer programs are designed to inspire your child.  We spark their interest in STEM as they plan an epic mission to Mars by packing each 4 day program with designing and printing in 3D, several forms of robotics, opportunities to use their creativity to help astronauts survive on Mars, and participate in a virtual reality experience to help them feel like they are the next, great Mars explorer. 

Our students think they come to build rockets, program robots, explore Mars, and meet new friends. We know they are also building skills in observation, investigation, STEM, creativity, teamwork, and perseverance. Not to mention confidence.

They come as kids. They leave as engineers.

Summer Programs are for Children ENTERING Grades 4, 5, or 6 in fall of 2021.

Information about Summer 2021 programming will be available mid to late February of 2021.


We are looking forward to a great 2020 season!
