The importance of education at the Museum of Flight is demonstrated throughout the museum’s extensive thirty educational programs. Educational programs at the Museum of Flight range from specialized tours and field trips to interactive and educational classes, camps, and clubs.
One of the most renowned educational programs at the Museum of Flight is the Aeronautical Science Pathway. The Aeronautical Science Pathway is geared towards full-time high school students who are passionate about aircraft and are thinking about pursuing a career in aeronautical science. During the Aeronautical Science Pathway, participants take six college level courses throughout the year. These courses are taught Monday through Thursday from 3:45 pm to 6 pm. Outside of class, students are expected to participate in approximately 3.5 hours of online learning. Through the classes, students learn about various academic and technical foundations that are key to assuming leadership roles within the aeronautical science industry.
The best part about this program is that it is completely free, and once it is successfully completed, students receive high school and college credit.Students will have an extra 3.0 points added onto their high school transcripts, and will have 30 college credits, which could ultimately decrease the time and money that they have to spend on college in the future. The Aeronautical Science Pathway is available for any high school junior or senior. For more information about the Aeronautical Science Pathway, head over to the Museum of Flight’s website.
