The Boeing Academy for STEM Learning at Home provides families with a series of exciting week-long experiences designed exclusively for students in grades 3-12. Using project-based learning techniques, each experience is designed around a specific theme, or subject, and is guided by our own Museum educators.

All our weekly experiences provide families with an engaging way to get learners excited about science, flight, space, and engineering. Each offers a unique blend of hands-on educational activities as well as engaging virtual community experiences designed to provide participants with projects that they can complete on their own schedule. At Boeing Academy at Home, your learners won’t just sit in front of their computers, they will interact with our Museum educators and other STEM professionals in a simple, structured environment! Plus, participants will have unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the world’s largest educational air and space museum! In addition to discovering their inner scientist or engineer, participants will be able to showcase their learning with family and their new online friends.

Each weekly themed experience is customized for children in one of three grade bands: elementary (grades 3-5), middle (grades 6-8) and high (grades 9-12) and weekly session length is between 6-15 hours dependent on grade. Each program is delivered via web-based platforms that require internet access and contains both online activities delivered in real-time by Museum of Flight staff as well as activities that can be downloaded on-demand for further exploration and development.
