The vision of the Aerospace Museum of California is to provide an interactive STEM experience to every child, school, and family who participates in the museum’s exhibits. Because students need inspiration and opportunities to learn about space, the STEM programs at the museum are specifically designed to introduce students to aviation and aerospace through engaging hands-on learning.

“Supporting the Aerospace Museum is a goal that we at SAFE feel is a key way to support our local community while celebrating the heritage of military and civilian aviation.” said Melissa Bittman, assistant vice president of regional sales at SAFE and an Aerospace Museum board member.
