Ever wanted to race a drone? STAR Academy in Timonium is giving local families a chance to do that (and so much more!) during their Back to School STEM Bash on August 25!

Designed for families with children ages 5 and up, the day of science and tech fun is guaranteed to inspire your inner engineer. Kids and adults alike will have the opportunity to try their hand at flying drones, building and driving robots, printing their own 3D designs, experiencing virtual reality and learning about video game design. Guests will also get to observe indoor drone races and robotics teams squaring off in combat- and sumo-style competitions.

“We hope to have a packed house on August 25,” said Tim Rhode, co-founder, STAR Academy. “Our Back to School STEM Bash is a great opportunity for families to not only have fun together, but to see all the programs STAR Academy has to offer.”

STAR Academy opened in Fall 2017 to give children, teenagers and young adults a dedicated space to develop new skills that are highly sought-after in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) career fields, while enjoying a fun, interactive, and often competitive environment. STAR Academy offers summer camps, year-round classes for all activities, as well as leagues for robotics and drone racing, and even memberships for students who want to train weekly.

But while their mission may be kids, Mom and Dad can get in on the drone action, too! STAR offers family memberships that enable adults to take part in the programs alongside their kids. That’s why it’s important to note that STAR Academy is not just a K-12 enrichment program or after school club. They define themselves as a technology training center — for the whole family.

Curious? Want to fly a drone? Or dying to know what a sumo-style robot competition looks like? Mark you calendar and take the whole family to STAR’s Back to School STEM Bash. Be sure to preregister by August 19th so that you’re eligible to win several of the prizes they’re giving away that day! Prizes include gift cards, free classes, and MORE. Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children.
