Donate and Help Us Inspire Our Youth

Education for All

We would like to give 30,000 Sacramento kids a STEM Experience, regardless of socio-economic background. Many kids don’t have the opportunity to visit a museum and may never realize their interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math-related careers. Your donation will help inspire our future leaders to pursue a career in STEM industries.

About Our Commitment

STEM Education

We are committed to inspire students to explore, dream, and discover Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) through hands-on learning.

Youth Outreach

Students need real-life inspiration and opportunities to learn. Our STEM programs help introduce them in an open and engaging learning space.

Community Partnerships

The Aerospace Museum of California firmly believes in the impact of community partnerships that bring exciting and engaging outreach programs to youth.


With interactive STEM exhibits and hundreds of artifacts on site, students of all ages can explore and pilot their own adventure.

Sponsor a Learning Experience

Our Flight Zone provides real world experiences to students. The Flight Zone consists of 6 independent flight simulator stations, each running the X-Plane 11 Flight Simulator program. Flight Zone guests will be personally trained by one of our knowledgeable Flight Zone Instructors. This one-on-one training allows each session to be uniquely tailored to each student’s needs and abilities. All of our instructors have a background in aviation, either private, commercial, or military and are eager to impart their wisdom and passion for aviation to the next generation.

I loved the Flight Zone! The instructors were really nice and patient. I had such a great experience and definitely would recommend this to my friends!
