Additionally, the grant allows the Museum to bring its programs to educators to reach an even greater number of students."As a first step toward putting this generous grant into action, we will bring in more than 50 teachers to learn new STEM-focused skills and approaches that they can take right back to the classroom. By allowing us to teach teachers, this grant has the ability to affect and benefit students for several years to come," commented Uli Sailer Das, executive director of the C.R. Smith Museum. C.R. Smith Museum programs, workshops, field trips and summer camps specifically target STEM, the science behind flight and careers in aviation. About the American Airlines C.R. Smith MuseumThe C.R.
