STARBASE provided use of the STARLAB Mobile Planetarium to members of the Sheboygan Astronomical Society (SAS). Over the days, SAS members conducted ten shows with 120 youth. Randy Griffin, Vice President, "We are showing the springtime night sky basically with two purposes, one to show what the sky looks like tonight and which constellations are visible. The second, how to use something that you recognize to find other bright stars and constellations."
STARBASE also collaborated with the Department of Wisconsin Transportation's Bureau of Aeronautics to conduct an educational booth for the teenage scientists. Students visited the STARBASE booth to fly a Cessna -172 aircraft on a flight simulator and identify symbols on a map of Wisconsin airports. Once completed, students received a stamp in their passport to qualify for the competition's raffle for prizes like tablets and gift cards. Wish to see the rocketry teams in action! Next year's date is set for May 8th and 9th at the Blue Harbor Resort in Sheboygan!
