Making SpaceNorth a Reality

We're going out into our business community and having conversations about Minnesota as SpaceNorth. We hope to develop strategic partners that can be on board with our SpaceNorth mission as a benefit to the Minnesota business landscape and the people who live and work here.


Supporting Anoka County Composite Squadron Cadet Programs 

We're please to support the innovative programming at the Anoka County Composite Squadron Civil Air Patrol. This vibrant, growing squadron is growing so fast, they are outgrowing their current space. As Starbird supports aerospace and STEM with youth, we want to support the needs of an organization that shares our values.

Some of our first goals to help them include:

  • Acquiring and donating computers to create a computer lab for CyberPatriot and StellarXplorers teams to practice and compete. These computers will also be used for cadets to advance their leadership training
  • Acquiring and donating updated projectors for each room large enough to effectively utilize one
  • Acquiring and donating classroom chairs so each cadet in the program has a chair for class.
  • Supporting future building space needs


Aerospace and STEM Resources

We plan to gather resources for youth to explore aerospace and STEM activities, events, scholarship programs, workforce programs and careers.

We support youth pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), aerospace and aviation.
And our STEM bucket is broad and deep.

Going to a 4-year college program? Great!
Doing a 2-year community college or technical school program? Super!
Civil Air Patrol Cadet headed to a STEM related NCSA? Rock on!
Looking at a career or enrichment in aerospace and/or aviation? Go for it!
