Volunteer Opportunities

Shape the future. Volunteer.

Did you ever wonder why you had to learn math in school? STARBASE kids do, too. The cool thing is, now you know the answer! Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are what the real world is made of. You know. Because you build it everyday.

Ever dream of being a rock star but know more about carbon fiber than guitar chords? At STARBASE Scientists are the stars! Our students are energized by seeing real world careers and meeting the people who live them.

We teach the science of rockets. But you don't have to be a rocket scientist to volunteer. From loading model rockets onto a launcher to participating in a Q & A session, STARBASE makes volunteering easy. We've thought through every volunteer scenario and developed resources to help you make the most of your valuable time.

Not sure what to say to a group? Our presentation outlines will guide you through. Don't think your field is relevant to kids? Our volunteer coordinator will help you connect the dots. And at every volunteer event there are STARBASE instructors at your side to make the experience as smooth and impactful as possible.


Our volunteers include:

  • parents
  • grandparents
  • teachers
  • older siblings
  • business professionals
  • your profession here...

Call Jeff Gabriel at 785.646.5730 or email jeff@kansasstarbase.org for more information.

Thank you for your support!

STARBASE Profiles

State Senator Elaine Bowers

Senator Elaine Bowers on Kansas STARBASEIt has been a great privilege of mine to be involved with DoD STARBASE for the past six years. Being a member of the Kansas STARBASE Foundation Board has given me the opportunity to help spread the word on how important it is to have these STEM programs available to our local youth. The U.S. Department of Defense and Kansas National Guard has formed a great relationship with STARBASE, and with their help, they are able to raise students' interest in skills related to science, technology, engineering, and math.
