Review for Institute of Flight (formerly Future of Flight Foundation), Mukilteo, WA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I was the Boeing project manager involved in pulling together this unique public, private and non-profit collaboration. Working together with others, we developed an exciting and relevant mission, the goal of which is to excite people about innovation, and more importantly the process of innovation. Engaging the the next generation of leaders to take interest in STEM and innovation is our prime focus. Asked to serve on the board, I was involved in a number of committees, and eventually selected to be its chair. It is an honor to serve with this dedicated and hard-working group of people who have great ideas and leverage our funds to maximize impact to the future.

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

Two areas: Education and Exhibits. The Flights of Innovation Education program is leading edge, and augments the classroom teacher's curriculum. It uses our exhibits to give hands-on experiences for the students.

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

The dedication, and talent, the board brings forward in helping us serve our mission and reach our goals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could... the genesis of change for future leaders to develop innovative solutions for some of the global challenges facing exciting and enbabling today's students to realize: we can.
