I love and respect the concerted effort of the organization to develop curiosity and support learning. Through the innovative programs offered by the Future of Flight, young people can see real opportunities and connections between aviation technology and educational disciplines. Amanda Goertz has carefully integrated multiple applications for varied learning styles. Very impressive!

As a CTE teacher at Arts and Tech High School in Marysville my students have had numerous educational connections with the F-of-F Foundation - all wonderful growth experiences. We've contributed to Earth Day programs, attended special functions and made videos for them, that they put on public dispay.

I encourage any and all teachers involved in STEM or not, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS GEM OF AN OPPORTUNITY! Now teaching in the AMTECH program at Everett Community College I look forward to working with the Foundation as a member-volunteer.

The Future of Flight Foundation is a significant presence in the Snohomish County educational community promoting STEM education. Their exhibits draw many students, who are introduced to the wonders of flight. Their partnerships with our district schools have made engineering come to life to many more students. And their evening family events give the community a vision of future career success. We are grateful for the presence of the foundation and hope the best for its future!

Amanda Goertz is taking this exemplary education center into wonderful new realms by incorporating NASA-sponsored space science materials in her professional development for teachers. Her expertise in the field of teacher and student education will provide innovative new 'courses' to the exceptional 'menu' of science and technology education at the Future of Flight Museum.

The Future of Flight is a wonderful public-private collaboration which is maturing quickly. The $25M facility is only four years old, but it has already welcomed over 750,000 paid visitors plus several hundred thousand other guests. One of the most notable achievements is the education program, which is in its second year of stimulating students and lighting a spark of innovation in their young minds. Another success has been in development of exhibits. The Foundation has received over $20M in exhibits, cash and in-kind gifts which complement the Boeing Tour.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Motivating the staff and volunteers to go the extra mile to provide high quality experiences and programs which stimulate the public.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to expand the circle of partners and supporters in aerospace and education.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The energy and customer focus demonstrated by the staff and volunteers, especially in education programs.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Enthusiastic and dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Rejuvenate the exhibits and hire a full-time education team which would enrich students with science and technology programs.

Ways to make it better...

We could do it all at once up front. Education, exhibits, visitor experience, meeting hosting...all demand staff time and funds. The Future of Flight is making great progress in all these areas, but with each success comes more challenges.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The public interest and willingness to support the Future of Flight is there now. Our main challenge is in raising the funds to complete the work plans in education and exhibits.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The Future of Flight is similar to a startup company. It has climbed a steep learning curve as a public attraction, meeting venue and educational center. There is a growing list of partners in this venture and many successes already.

The Future of Flight Foundation is taking off. The foundation is tasked with creating an environment to cultivate curiosity and stimulate imagination. This is done through it's education program, exhibits, events, and foreign exchange program. Over the past year, the Future of Flight has spent considerable time and resources in developing the Flights of Innovation Education Program. This is an immersive based learning model that pairs local schools with tools, resources, and educators to encourage students to use their creativity, teamwork, and research to solve real world problems that do not have one solution. The final project is for them to present to the audience their solution, which was derived from their research. The amount of passion and energy shown, by the students is indicative of putting 100% effort into learning. The skills that they take out of the process relates to public speaking, math and science, working in a team, logic, and the idea that every member can be an important part of the team. I witnessed one student who throughout the school year was too shy to speak up in class, but desired to present at the final presentation. He did, his classmates cheered, and the smile on his face showed that he broke through a barrier by going way beyond his comfort level. There are many stories like this that demonstrate that by giving students a venue, you can have them accomplish things that are difficult to be taught in a classroom based environment. The exhibit committee has been working to create an environment that inspires, challenges, and encourages thought. This is a great organization that is a huge asset to the local community, but is also one that is experienced by hundreds of thousands from around the world.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing it grow... When I first was exposed to the Future of Flight Foundation there was not an education program and we were still defining the mission of the foundation. We have made huge leaps, are heading in the right direction! The future is bright.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very enthusiastic about the Future of Flight, very passionate about telling the story of the foundation, where aviation has been and where it is going. Very friendly and you can tell they love being here.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Fully develop the education program, design and develop exhibits that educate, inspire and create curiosity. The community is loving what they are seeing, and want more than we have the resources to handle.

The Future of Flight education program has invested in a curriculum for middle school students that strengthens and prepares our young people for America’s global competitiveness combined with innovative thinking skills. Their commitment to better educate our young people in math and science and to attract more of our best and brightest students into technological careers in aerospace and aviation careers is to be commended. As a sponsor of the Flights of Innovation education program we appreciate Future of Flight’s professional development workshops for teachers that promote a variety of pedagogical approaches that develop questioning strategies which advance higher order thinking of their students.

Meeting and greeting people from all walks of life and from all over the world has been an eye-opening experience. Everyone is so interested in the latest technology and the difference that Boeing is making in our area and in our world. Children especially love learning about the big planes and seeing the models in our Gallery. Volunteering at the Future of Flight Museum has been one of the nicest experiences of my life.

The Future of Flight education program addresses the needs of our students to exercise their problem solving skills at a very high level. While most programs in informal education tend to be heavily "scripted" or have the students work within assigned roles to solve a proposed problem or scenario, the Future of Flight education program presents students with real-life problems. The students then immerse themselves in researching the situation, deciding what role they prefer to play, and developing the expertise needed to work out solutions as a team. This is true research and problem solving at the highest levels.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

speaking with teachers who have brought their classes to the Future of Flight Aviation Center for this experience.

The Furture of Flight Foundtion truly has a global story, told locally. From the local school children whose eyes light up in our "Flights of Innovation" program, to the neighbors and employees in our state's world-class aviation industry who come to see the exhibits, to our international student exchange participants, to the U.S. and international tourists--people come to imagine the possibilities of flight and innovation. It is an organization with an exciting mission, dedicated to leveraging its resources to inspire the future.

The Great!
