Summer Next Gen 2022

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.
