STEM Day! with the Boston Red Sox
The JetBlue Foundation hosted a booth at a pre-game STEM fair at Fenway stadium to demonstrate “How Planes Fly” through a quick iPad presentation about the Four Forces of Flight and a hands on activity using paper airplanes. After the presentation, students were encouraged to throw paper airplanes to see the physics of flight in action.

JetBlue Foundation helps kids "Fly Like a Girl"
The JetBlue Foundation’s annual “Fly like a girl” event is an opportunity for young girls and women to get their wings. This year, 100 girls from Salt Lake City came together to learn what it takes to soar in a career in aviation.
JetBlue Foundation and Project Scientist
The JetBlue Foundation sponsored Project Scientist’s STEM Expedition Summer Academy for more than 60 campers at Long Beach Airport (LGB). Students were able to receive an overview of JetBlue’s operation and learn from pilots and other crew members about career options within an airline. Project Scientist offers educational programming for girls in low-income background areas so they can participate in hand-on experiments and local field trips.
Joanna Geraghty: What It Means to be a Female Leader in the Industry
Joanna is the only current female president of the largest airlines in the country, but was unprepared for others to call her a trailblazer. For her, it’s the day-to-day that drives her passion for the airline industry, but she didn’t take an typical path to the top.
Partnering with OBAP to Help Students Touch the Skies
The JetBlue Foundation partnered with the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals (OBAP) to send students to camps in seven cities across the country to learn about what it is like to have a career in the aviation industry.
