  • VERMONT YOUTH EDUCATION

    SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING & MATH

    STARBASE Vermont has served students, teachers and schools since 1994. Our mission is to raise the interest and improve the knowledge and skills of youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). We provide an exciting activity-based curriculum involving hands-on STEM, teambuilding, and healthy choices

    With program sites in Rutland and South Burlington, we are able to reach over 1,500 students annually in Vermont. More than 21,000 Vermont students have participated in the program. There is no fee for students to participate. Primary consideration is given to Title I schools in the application and selection process.
