active ​in communities

SPEEA members are active in their communities promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education to ensure the youth of today are prepared to lead the aerospace industry in the years to come.


In addition to the thousands of hours members volunteer each year, a portion of SPEEA dues are dedicated to support STEM education and community service programs.
