STARBASE Indiana-South Bend opened on Thursday, March 31, 2016. This location is located at the newly renovated National Guard Armory Facility. Founded in 1636 as a citizen force organized to protect families and towns from hostile attacks, today’s National Guard Soldiers hold civilian jobs or attend college while maintaining their military training part time, always ready to defend the American way of life in the event of an emergency.
Launch into learning this summer with STARBASE Summer STEM Academy! Think like a scientist. Build like an engineer. Students will spend four exciting days exploring a variety of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) concepts. Participants will apply what they learn through fun and creative “hands-on, minds-on” projects and activities. We will design and launch rockets; we will build and code LEGO Spike robots; and explore emerging technologies, and that is just the start!
