Boeing Donates 'Legends of Flight' Proceeds To Washington State LASER

Leadership & Assistance For Science Education Reform (LASER) Assists School Districts With Research-Based Science Programs

The Washington State Leadership & Assistance for Science Education Reform (LASER) received a surprise $26,000 donation from Boeing on Wednesday. The donation comes from proceeds from its sponsorship of the IMAX film "Legends of Flight." The presentation took place during the monthly executive board meeting at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, WA.

"Boeing is delighted to be able to support this great organization in its effort to give teachers and principals the training and resources they need to improve science instruction statewide and beyond," said Tim Copes, vice president of Manufacturing and Quality, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, and board member at the Pacific Science Center. "We expect this to be the first of many donations to educate, engage and motivate children in science as the film continues to open at theaters around the world."

Additional financial donations will be made to support science-related initiatives as "Legends of Flight" continues to play at theaters around the world. Boeing receives 10 cents for each ticket sold. The film highlights legendary 20th century airplanes, as well as the manufacturing, testing, rollout and first flight of the 787 Dreamliner, the first all-new airplane of the 21st century.

"The film is a tribute to all of the people who made the 787 possible," said Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager of the 787 program. "And through the great work of Washington LASER, the film is now assisting schools with research-based science programs. We see this donation as an investment in creating a future workforce that is inspired to launch the next generation of discoveries, innovations and inventions."
