Welcome to STARBASE Great Falls!


STARBASE Great Falls was established at the 120th Airlift Wing in 2011. We provide 25 hours of hands-on STEM instruction to all fifth graders in the Great Falls Public School District. Students are typically bused to our STARBASE classroom for five days from 9 AM-2:30 PM. Students can expect to tour C-130 airplanes, learn to code, program robots, achieve engineering challenges, and learn about different STEM careers.
