Boeing and Bill Boeing’s family donate $30 million to the Museum of Flight to create the “Boeing Academy for STEM Learning” at the museum, which will promote science, technology, engineering, and math education programs. An estimated 45,000 future jobs in Washington will require STEM credentials, and Boeing believes that this program will help to fill those positions. The goal of the new funding is to have 5,000 students participating by 2019. Half of those will be young women, students of color or economically disadvantaged youth. Boeing:
This is an opportunity to invest in our children and in our region’s future economic health and growth.
