STARBASE is a Department of Defense educational program with four locations in Indiana, including Fort Wayne, South Bend, Gary and Indianapolis, residing at the Stout Field headquarters campus of the Indiana National Guard. Indiana STARBASE students participate in challenging "hands-on, minds-on" experiential activities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in an environment that is both technological and that exposes them to positive civilian and military role models in their communities. The free, five-day, 25-hour intensive program is designed at the 5th grade level for an entire class (up to 32 students), and STARBASE also provides summer camps for individual students wishing to participate in the program. Students have the opportunity to interact with STEM professionals to explore careers and observe STEM applications in the real world, while learning to set goals and work to achieve them.
