Space, Technology and Robotics Systems (STaRS)

Lompoc High School, Lompoc, California

The STaRS Academy strength is its mentor program, facilities, and industry certifications. The latest manufacturing equipment and expert instruction allows students to become certified in design software.

Students engage with venerable mentors, mostly from Vandenberg Air Force Base, in a monthly, casual dining atmosphere that allows for open conversation regarding the students’ potential choices. Field trips to nearby VAFB allow students access to rocket launch sites near and on which many of the mentors work. Three-dimensional printing and milling equipment gives design students experience and possible certification in industry standard software like AutoCAD and Solidworks. If they can imagine it, they can build it.
