We serve students that are historically under-represented in the STEM fields, encouraging students to set career goals and achieve them.
— Starbase Maxwell

MEF manages the Department of Defense's STARBASE program on-site at Maxwell Air Force Base, a unique STEM lab where 5th graders from Montgomery, Autauga, and Elmore counties have a unique hands-on experience throughout each school year. While at STARBASE these students will build and program robots, launch rockets, and study with professional lab equipment. This school year will be STARBASE’s 11th year at Maxwell and it has nearly doubled the number of students enrolled from 750 students last year to 1,450 students this year.
