Public in Pilot's Seat at Interactive Above and Beyond Exhibit

Boeing and partners bring innovative, interactive, immersive Above and Beyond Exhibit to numerous cities to celebrate Boeing’s 100 years of innovation.

Boeing, NASA, Evergreen Exhibitions and the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum have teamed up to create and present Above and Beyond, a cutting-edge aviation exhibit. Participants can take flight by building and flying their own plane, jumping into the international space elevator, joining the Marathon to Mars, or helping clean up “space junk.”  They will also find inspiration in nature by “flying” like a bird, and learn about past aviation feats.

This exhibit is part of the celebration of Boeing’s 100 years of innovation.  The collaborators that worked to create this exhibit hope that during the experience, the next generation of engineers will be inspired to take on the biggest challenges and opportunities that face aviation and aerospace on our planet and beyond. Watch this Boeing Above and Beyond video to go inside the exhibit designed for all ages and visit to find out if Above and Beyond is coming to a city near you.

Participants blast "Space Junk" at the Above and Beyond exhibit in St. Louis. The educational game teaches about the huge amount of man-made debris in space, and encourages the pursuit of careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) to help find solutions.
