Where Education, Innovation & History Meet

We create an environment for life-long learners while providing a foundation for our future leaders and workforce.

This groundbreaking initiative is not just a celebration of aviation’s rich heritage, but a profound exploration of the transformative power of STEM.

The National STEM Academy is a registered trademark program of the Museum of Aviation Foundation.  The National STEM Academy offers field trip and individual programs that integrate innovative, hands-on STEM disciplines, including the Arts such as history, literature, and more. These programs are offered for learners ages 4 through adult. Rigorous, goal-setting experiences challenge participants to solve problems and are aligned to state and national education standards.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, but it’s more than that. STEM has grown to represent a unique approach to teaching and learning — one that centers around individual students learning styles and interests.
