Learning through science

Since 2011, the Airbus Foundation has supported the Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center in introducing and developing its ExploreAIR programme. The aim of the programme is to ignite curiosity in science, maths and technology, and to inspire youngsters to consider careers in aeronautics through an aviation science programme, summer camp and Principles of Flight workshops. More than 42,000 visitors of all ages, including approximately 30,000 children, benefit from the Exploreum’s curriculum-relevant exhibits, laboratory and classroom. A total of 120 Airbus employees have volunteered their time to help the programme.
