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.

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 Future of Flight Foundation's vision is to give wings to innovative thinking. It has developed an education program to engage a wide range of middle school students in innovative thinking and problem solving. This unique program begins in the classroom, moves to the Future of Flight Aviation Center and then back to the classroom. Working in teams in an immersive and experiential learning experience, students solve real-world problems and research careers relevant to these issues.

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

feedback from teachers and students participating in the education program. All of the teachers who participate are returning the next year. Students learned new team and problem solving skills.

The Future of Flight stimulates the imagination of young people. Here kids learn how to think. As it becomes more accepted with the local school districts and as more exhibits are completed, I believe the attendance will increase further.

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

its outreach program, where students participate in team problem-solving projects. Also, some of our students designed a walk-in wind tunnel for a real, hands-on experience. The completion of that project awaits full funding.
