Boeing partners with students, families and educators to inspire and motivate the next generation of innovators.


Students, Mentors

Boeing employees are inspiring students and parents to engage in active learning where a problem is solved by applying classroom lessons to a real-world challenge.

By leveraging our total resources, including corporate grants, partnerships with higher educational institutions and employee volunteerism, Boeing is committed to helping children and youth achieve their potential through educational enrichment and support programs that promote academic success, independence and economic sustainability.

Educational Resources

As part of our centennial, Boeing engineers teamed up with several leading educational partners to co-create K-12 educational resources that celebrate the science behind the past 100 years of aerospace advancement and ready students, families and teachers with skills for the next century.

We're offering these free resources — including video profiles, interactive learning modules, family and teacher guides, and online engineering design challenges — as we get ready to turn 100 years young on July 15, 2016.

Whether you are a teacher planning a field trip, a student digging deeper into topics explored in the Above and Beyond exhibition, a parent who wants to support your child’s aerospace interests, or a future innovator exploring careers in aerospace, you’re in the right place!

Early Learning

Boeing takes the long view that learning begins at birth. Our investments in early learning are intended to ensure that every child has access to quality early care and education. Early learning is essential to giving all students a good and equal start in life. Boeing supports efforts to improve the preparation of early caregivers and drive public awareness of the importance of early education. Research shows that early learning has a significant return on investment; youth who have access to high-quality early learning opportunities are better prepared for building literacy and numeracy skills and are less likely to require remediation in core subjects later on in life.

Educator Leadership Development

Through collaboration with Boeing, the national nonprofit New Leaders is able to help teachers and principals hone their leadership abilities through training and school-based residency programs.

Boeing supports the development of educators because teachers and school leaders are key levers of student achievement and success, and because leadership is a Boeing core value and commitment. Research indicates that educators and school leaders have an outsized impact on student learning and achievement. Supporting educator leadership development in both instruction and management is critical to improving student outcomes. Boeing supports school and teacher leadership programs that support educators in shifting their practice so that they are equipped to create learning environments that allow students to practice and acquire 21st century skills.

Problem-based Learning

The FIRST Robotics Competition matches Boeing employee mentors with more than 200 student teams annually as they design, build and test robots to compete with others around the world.

How students learn matters as much as the quality of what they learn. Our efforts are intended to inspire and prepare students to learn throughout their lives and apply their knowledge in relevant ways to improve the world we live in – that’s what Boeing employees do every day. Skills such as creative problem-solving, technical expertise, curiosity and persistence are the same qualities we want to instill in the next generation. Drawing on the company’s core competencies and leadership in engineering, science and advanced manufacturing, Boeing supports problem-based learning opportunities related to STEM experiences and skills for students and their families.
