Throughout our centennial celebration, join us as we dive into our vast collection of Boeing artifacts to explore defining moments of our past. Our new series "The Boeing Archives Presents" brings to life our history through the photos, film, documents and relics that preserve our company's journey. Maintained to capture where we've been and influence where we're going, the Boeing Archives is one of the largest collections of its kind anywhere in the world.
As part of our centennial, Boeing is looking ahead to the next century of possibilities, especially for the next generation of dreamers, builders and inventors. Helping kids get excited about technology and engineering today means more innovations, history-making ideas, and inventions that will change the world in the future.
We celebrated our centennial year with 100 Days of Learning—a series featuring specially-curated content co-created by Boeing engineers for parents, teachers, and students with a weekly focus on new and exciting themes.
Get inspired by our collection of lesson plans, videos, interactive media and design challenges, all of which are intended to develop students’ 21st century skills through STEM knowledge and experiences.
