We love it when you ask questions!
How much does it cost to attend STARBASE?
There is no cost. Schools just have to provide and pay for transportation to and from the STARBASE facility.
What grade levels can attend?
The typical STARBASE student is in the fifth grade, but some schools take advantage of our deep curriculum to bring students in fourth or sixth grade as well without repeating the experience.
How many students may attend in a classroom?
A classroom may not be less than 20 students and no more than 35. We can accommodate two classrooms per day.
How many days do students attend STARBASE?
During the school year, students visit for twenty five hours of classroom time, coming at least five days, spread over five consecutive weeks. During the summer academies, students attend over the course of one week, Monday through Friday, from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
Does STARBASE do one day tours?
While we value the interest, we have not designed our program to accommodate tours.
Does STARBASE have a cafeteria or a place to get food?
No. All participants, including teachers, chaperones, and students, must bring a non-perishable lunch and drink for each visit.
I'm a parent. Can I sign my child up individually?
We offer summer academies for individual child sign-up. Visit our academies page for more details.
