Supporting Education & Helping Dreams Take Flight!
A Big Thank You to the GenCorp Foundation and Aerojet Rocketdyne for your incredible support. On November 6th, the GenCorp Foundation presented the Museum with a $10,000 check to support our Take Flight education program.
Pictured is Juanita Garcia, Executive Director of the GenCorp Foundation making the check presentation to Museum Board President, Jim Hopp, Major General USAF (Retired).
Too many young people are falling behind in their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills. This problem is particularly evident in schools in minority and economically disadvantaged communities. The Aerospace Museum of California is working with local schools and students to do something about it.
The Museum is dedicated to being a regional leader in STEM education providing hands-on aviation and aerospace learning experiences. Thanks to the generous support of the GenCorp Foundation and Aerojet Rocketdyne, the Museum is able to bring STEM education programs to the students who need it most.
51,000 students have participated in Aerospace Museum interactive education experiences including Robotics, Science Sundays, Aerospace Summer Camp, and the Aerospace Learning Center since 2007.
