STARBASE Profiles

Dr. Emily Arnold

What They're Saying

“This program has been great for my students. The hands-on activities use equipment that our school doesn't have and so coming to STARBASE has been super beneficial for the students (and for me). The activities introduced a lot of concepts that we will cover this year, giving my students a head-start.” —E. Shaffer, Teacher, Flint Hills Christian School (Manhattan)
