Alaska Airlines said it is making a USD2.5m gift to The Museum of Flight to create the Alaska Airlines Aerospace Education Center.
The Alaska Airlines Aerospace Education Center, to be located in the Museum´s T.A. Wilson Great Gallery, will be a resource centre where teachers, parents, and students will be able to explore the many K-12 education programs offered at the Museum.
Designed to create pathways to science, technology, engineering, and math careers, the center will feature state-of-the-art technology resources such as online career planning software, 3-D printers and flight simulators, as well as specially trained staff to serve as “education concierges” to help visitors register for programs, apply for financial assistance, and discover mentorship opportunities.
Alaska Airlines, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK), together with its partner regional airlines, serves nearly 100 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. For reservations, visit www.alaskaair.com.
