Taking flight toward new destinations.
Bringing real world meaning to scientific research.
General Douglas MacArthur once said, "A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent." Colonel David Augustine is a "true leader". His 2011 vision to debut a STARBASE Academy in Indiana has resulted in over 2000 graduates since our inception on February 14th, 2012.
Colonel Augustine is a committed advocate for elementary STEM education and will always be recognized as the founder of STARBASE Indiana.
Colonel David Augustine,
STARBASE Indiana thanks you for your support and wishes you the best in your retirement and future endeavors.
Operation Military Kids
Operation Military Kids participants have enjoyed the newest STARBASE Indiana collaboration to reach military kids in our community!
OMK is a collaborative effort with America's communities to support children and youth impacted by deployment. At our first STARBASE and OMK event, participants designed rockets with the OMK "Rockets to the Rescue" activity, simulating a launch from the mainland, travel over the ocean and delivery of high-energy food to a location in need.
We are looking forward to seeing more kids connected to our military at our next event on January 10th. Registrants need to have a parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle or relative who is or has served in the military.
The new Indianapolis location is now accepting applications for classes to attend at the Stout Field location. Our Deputy Director, Brande "Bubbles" Morgan, is excited to bring you her educational enthusiasm in Indianapolis.
In addition to teaching 5th graders at STARBASE, Brande previously coordinated the STARBASE 2.0 after school program for 6th-8th grades. The program engages students through the inquiry-based curriculum with its "hands-on, mind-on" experiential activities. They study Newton's Laws and Bernoulli's principle; explore nanotechnology, navigation and mapping.
These programs are available at no cost to schools and organizations. Sign your class up now! Learn more here >
Thank you Col Augustine
Super Science Saturdays
Welcome current classes!
STARBASE Indiana is a premier educational program, sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs. At STARBASE Indiana students participate in challenging "hands-on, minds-on" activities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Students interact with STEM professionals to explore careers and observe STEM applications in the real world. The program encourages students to set goals and achieve them.
What is STARBASE Indiana?
To raise the interest and improve the knowledge and skills of at-risk youth in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics; which will provide for a highly educated and skilled American workforce that can meet the advanced technological requirements of the Department of Defense.
Exposing youth to the technological environments and positive role models found on military bases and installations, throughout the course of 20-25 hours of exemplary instruction, using a common core curriculum that meets or exceeds the national standards. We will nurture a winning network of collaborators and build mutual loyalty.
