Support STEM Education and Make a Difference!
At the Frontiers of Flight Museum, North Texas Giving Day is the perfect opportunity to support STEM – SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, MATH – education.
How Kids Grow Through STEM
We teach kids the fundamentals and advanced skills in astronomy, physics, math, robotics, coding, and much more at our FOFM Aviation & Space Camp, Spring Break Camp, school tours throughout the year, community outreach at a plethora of events, and through our Youth Volunteer Program.
How Kids Grow Through STEM in Exploration Space
We take kids to the Moon, through the Solar System and back to Earth using the fascinating programs in our portable planetarium, SPOC, and the exploration of our Space Flight Gallery, anchored by the Apollo VII Command Module.
Launched in 2016 with the addition of SPOC, our Exploration Space Initiative is a multi-faceted expansion of our STEM programming that includes a major expansion of our Space Flight Gallery with new interactive learning stations and displays. Also in the plans is a Space Video Series that will be streaming online for use in any classroom – teaching about the past, present and future of space exploration.
