STARBASE Indiana congratulates our newest Indianapolis location!
STARBASE Indiana is a premier educational program, sponsored by the Department of Defense. 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.
Thanks to many generous donors, STARBASE Indiana-Fort Wayne has opened classroom #2!
Due to overwhelming response, all classes in Fort Wayne and Indianapolis are full. South Bend will be accepting applications soon!
We also thank these 2015 STEAM Theme

Say hello to our new Indianapolis crew: Bubbles, Bunsen, and Buttons!
Classes are filling up quickly, and they will happily tell you more about their STEM-tastic plans for Indianapolis.
There's a new STARBASE in town!
COMING SOON! STARBASE SOUTH BEND!
Welcome STARBASE Indiana 2015-2016 classes!
Exposing youth to the technological environments and positive role models in civilian professions and military installations, throughout the course of 20-25 hours of exemplary instruction, using a curriculum that meets or exceeds the state and national standards.
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.
