The program engages students through an inquiry-based curriculum. Students study Newton's Laws and Bernoulli's principle; explore nanotechnology, navigation and mapping. They are captivated by engineering as they use the computer to design components, then print them out on the 3D printer.  Math is embedded throughout the curriculum. Teamwork is stressed as they work together to explore, explain, elaborate and evaluate concepts. STARBASE offers a positive, proven approach to increasing excitement and interest in STEM.
