Rocket Launching Days

Students spend a total of five days at STARBASE Goodfellow.  During this time, they learn about Newton's Laws and get to build water bottle rockets.  What better way to see Newton's Laws than to launch your rocket.  On the students third day at STARBASE they watch the weather and hope they get to launch.  As the volunteers show up, they know they are going to launch.  Volunteers help our staff set up our launchers and they also learn about the STARBASE program.  Another vital part of STARBASE is to have the students interact with as many positive role models as we can.  Our volunteers get to talk to the students as they are setting up their rockets and learn about their hobbies and interest.  In kind, the students learn about the volunteers and their careers in just a short period of time.  Rocket launching day is always a great day, but our VOLUNTEERS make it even better. 

Upcoming Rocket Launching Days:

Jan 22, 23, 24, 25, Feb 13, Mar 4 ,5, 6, 7, 8, 18, April 10, 23, 24, 25, 26, May 15, 22

Stem Career Presenter

The STARBASE Goodfellow 5th Grade Program is a 5-day educational program located at Goodfellow Air Force Base.  Our curriculum is based on the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) content areas.  It includes lots of hands-on experiments to foster students interest in these areas.  One of our goals is to encourage students to consider a career field in these areas.  We are always on the look out for volunteers to talk to our 5th grade students about their career to spark interest in that field.

Available Career Guide Dates:

Feb 27, 28, Mar 1, 4, Apr 9, 15, 17, 18, May 14, 21

Most of our presenters talk to each group of students for 30 minutes. If you have a STEM career and would like to come talk to our students, please email us at starbaseoffice@samfa.org. We would love to have you volunteer and learn about our program as we learn about your career.
