Exposure Leads to Success

ASK Alumni Jaylen Palmer offers insight to part of his journey to aviation and the lessons he learned along the way.

We exist to make equity in Aerospace a science.

Airway Science for Kids, Inc. (ASK) is a nonprofit with a mission to remove barriers for children and youth who have been systematically excluded from STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) education and careers.

ASK engages youth of color and youth who are living on low-incomes in unique opportunities to learn about STEAM through the exciting world of flight.

Who We Serve

ASK serves youth ages 10-21 in acquiring the fundamentals of aviation and aerodynamics as well as the applied mathematics and engineering that drive them. While open to all youth, ASK strives to increase STEAM exposure to low income and youth of color.
