The Institute of Flight's Teacher Advisory Board (TAB) is a user group of teachers, informal educators, youth group leaders, and industry representatives who use the Institute of Flight’s Education programs. TAB meets to discuss grade-level appropriateness, alignment, relevance, and how to improve  pre- and post-curricula as well as the day-of learning experience. TAB provides first hand experience, evaluation, and recommendations for curriculum alignment, and proposals. TAB is the approving OSPI review committee for professional development workshops with the Institute of Flight. In addition, suggestions are welcomed for other programs and events as well as possible grants to submit or collaborate together on. TAB meets one Saturday a quarter, from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Future of Flight Aviation Center. TAB members receive program discounts when they register their class. 

Consider joining or recommending TAB members. Currently, we are seeking two educators and one administrator per school district. Snohomish School District, Shoreline School District, Seattle School District, and Everett Public Schools are being represented, and we look forward to including more members from Snohomish, King, and Island counties.  If you are interested in becoming a TAB member, please contact Amanda Goertz at 425-438-8100 x245 or email
