Aerospace is committed to inspiring the next generation. Since 2013, we have supported K-12 education by hosting educational programs for teachers and high school students. Free of charge, these events expose participants to the research, state-of-the art facilities, and 21st century skills needed to succeed in the STEM fields and provide real-world examples of problems and solutions.
COVID-19 RESPONSE: The safety of our program participants, staff, and their families is our highest priority. All Aerospace STEM programs are virtual until further notice.
Aerospace STEM Explorers
Calling all STEM explorers! Do you have a passion for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and want to learn more? Aerospace has collected lectures from several top scientists at Aerospace and universities around the country and will be sharing them here. The topics cover a range of science and engineering disciplines that will inspire students to continue their discovery of STEM.

Audience with Aerospace: James Webb Space Telescope
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is NASA’s largest space science telescope ever developed. This project is a tremendous example of how STEM professionals can work together to build something extraordinary. The telescope will orbit almost one million miles away from Earth and explore science questions like the first galaxies and distant solar systems.
We were delighted to host a special event ahead of the JWST launch on December 22. At this Audience with Aerospace, K-12 students will hear from Kenneth Harris, senior project engineer about the space telescope and his experience working on the project. The event will also cover what it takes to launch and get a spacecraft into orbit with Jonathan Binkley, systems director at STARS Mission Operation Center.
