Ways to Donate to and Support STARBASE

The Kansas STARBASE program can use your help and support. There are a lot of worthy voices in the community asking for your donations. It’s likely you already contribute to some. Providing Kansas’ youth with an opportunity to better their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills along with creating positive life choices is the foundation of the STARBASE program.

You may be wondering why add STARBASE to your charitable giving? We think these are just a few good reasons:

  • Your donation to STARBASE ensures that our school year program remains high quality and free.
  • Your donation helps put new technology into our classrooms and into the hands of our students.
  • Your donation supports our mission to provide quality STEM experiences to intercity youth.
  • Your donation allows our instructor team to stay current on educational best practices through expanded professional development opportunities. 

Please join us in making a difference in the lives of Kansas’ children. Even the smallest donations help us change the lives of our students.

I don’t remember all the details, but I think there was a group of 4th-6th graders who were a part of the gifted program from my county that travelled to Wichita once a week (or maybe every other) so that we could attend the STARBASE program at McConnell.
