A Special Message for Moms, Dads and Kids:

If you’re looking for things to do that are challenging and fun while schools are closed and camps are cancelled, you’ve come to the right place! The Boeing Academy for STEM Learning at Home is offering a series of exciting week-long experiences designed exclusively for kids in grades 3-12.This is no ordinary stare-at-your computer virtual activity. Each of our weekly experiences will have your kids interacting with other kids from around the country to learn about the wonders of flight, space and engineering from Museum educators and STEM professionals, including a real, live astronaut!

From designing gliders, to building your own space stations, to doing yoga like the astronauts, even conducting scientific experiments with vacuums and marshmallows (!), your learners will discover their inner scientist or engineer while having unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the world’s largest educational air and space museum!

So don’t wait, sign up today!


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.
