Air and Space West Educational Foundation Presentation to Moffett Restoration Advisory Board

  1. 1. A World-Class Western SmithsonianEarth, Air, and Space STEM Education CenterAir and Space West Educational Foundation
  2. 2. Vision and MissionVision - To inspire new generations to solve Sciences and Engineering’s Grand Challenges. Mission - It is the mission of the proposed Smithsonian Earth, Air, and Space STEM Education Center; at Hangar One, a NASA national historic site and birthplace of Silicon Valley; to engender curiosity, promote meaningful hands-on education, and inspire through the Smithsonians scientific, inventive, and historic treasures. We will provide a world class model that will shape and advance thinkers who will make the scientific and engineering discoveries in fields such as transportation, g g p , communications, space science, and planetary sustainability that will change the world and that will continue to excite passion for innovation for generations to come. Simply, Simply our mission, is to sustain the ability for the next generation and future ones mission thereafter to change the world, like we did.

  6. 6. STEM Laboratory Classrooms1. If Silicon Valley is going to be competitive, we must build a new vision of the role of education in preparing students for the 21st century workforce. High-quality STEM education and learning environments that - prize innovation and imagination - produce children who ultimately will - germinate new inventions, - develop new products, - create new solutions for many of our worlds most pressing problems.
  7. 7. The STEM Crisis Today The U S is 26th of 65 countries U.S. By 2014, 15 of the 20 fastest- in student science tests. growing professions require STEM skills. 79% of science teachers In 2001, less than 8% of U.S. college are not trained in degrees were in the sciences, down from science education. 17% in 1960.School teaching laboratories are bare, absent of g ,inspiring science magic shows and cognitivelearning that switched on the sputnik generation thattook man to the moon.
