The PPG Industries Foundation recently announced a $5,000 donation to the Frontiers of Flight Museum located in Dallas to support aviation and space-flight education programs for pre-K through 10th grade students. The grant was made on behalf of PPG Industries’ Dallas-area aerospace application support center in Grand Prairie, Tex.
The Frontiers of Flight Museum is a learning laboratory that uses aviation and space-flight topics to encourage and promote student excellence in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects. With PPG’s donation, the museum will be able to double the number of students served in year-round education classes to 12,000 annually. In addition, the museum will be able to increase the number of summer Flight School participants from 275 to more than 425.
“Expanding our program is certainly exciting, as we work to engage more students with our STEM-focused educational programs,” said Cheryl Sutterfield-Jones, president and CEO of the Frontiers of Flight Museum. “Because of PPG, thousands more students will have access to our aviation- and space-flight-focused activities.”
