About Us

We Are a One-Of-A-Kind STEM Experience

The Learning Jet is a renovated Boeing 727-200 cargo jet transformed into a classroom for education and community organizations. Our unique, hands-on program helps students succeed in school and creates an aviation workforce pipeline so our region is prepared to meet the transportation challenges of the future.

Program Goals and Objectives:

  • Increase student proficiency in STEM subjects, with an emphasis on girls and underrepresented students

  • Enhance the teaching of STEM subjects in Minnesota PreK-12 schools

  • Provide students with a learning experience that connects STEM subjects to exciting, real-world applications

  • Foster development of confidence in students’ ability to succeed in STEM subjects

  • Introduce students to the many different careers available in transportation industries, with a special emphasis on providing women and minority role models

  • Build the capacity of Minnesota schoolteachers to implement transportation lessons and activities in their classrooms

  • Assist local colleges with practical hands-on experience working on a large aircraft
