Summer Academies

Summer Group Museum Topeka

"Engineers build the world around us. At STARBASE we build engineers."

Some of our students think they come to build rockets, explore airplanes and drive rovers. We know they are also building skills in observation, investigation, science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Not to mention confidence.

They come as kids. They leave as engineers. 

Summer academies are available to students who have completed 4th, 5th or 6th grade. NO EXCEPTIONS! Wichita, Topeka, Salina, Kansas City, Manhattan and Hays are five-day academies. 

2018 Information coming soon.

STARBASE Profiles

Tanner Kellogg

My name is Tanner Kellogg and I believe that attending DoD STARBASE when I was younger helped shape my life as well as the course of my education and career. I attended STARBASE Kansas at McConnell AFB in Wichita, Kansas. It was a one-week day camp during the summer of 2001, and I was nine years old. I had just finished 3rd grade at Woodland Health and Wellness Magnet Elementary School.
