STARBASE Advanced

CIVIL ENGINEERING CLUB

STARBASE 2.0 offers a civil engineering club, this year located at CHEP, where students have the opportunity to learn about civil engineering, problem solving, and the importance of teamwork. The students aim to demonstrate the different diciplines of civil engineering in their final team

project.

STARBASE 2.0 also provides a beginner rocketry club, last year located at St. Pius Catholic School, where students learn about rocketry and launching their own model rocket. Students are taught safety procedures, equpiment handling, and teamwork.

ROCKETRY CLUB

STARBASE 3.0 is an advanced rocketry program for grades 9-12.  Students are challenged to design and build a rocket(s) from scratch that will perform the tasks as specified in the annual nationwide competition TARC (Team America Rocket Challenge).  Students work in small teams to solve complex problems in physics, engineering, and technology.  Students use Rock Sim software to design the rockets and run simulations while adjusting many design variables including center of gravity, and center of mass.  During construction, students will use 3D printers, laser cutters, and other hardware.  The goal is always to win competitions at the state, national, and international levels.  Students compete for recognition and scholarships from aerospace industry leaders such as NASA, Raytheon, and Northrop-Grumman.
