"Teachers are vital partners in the Cradle of Aviation Museum's mission to preserve Long Island’s contribution to aerospace, science, and technology by inspiring future generations through learning. Whether it is at the Museum or in the school, the teachers with whom we work make what we do possible: working behind the scenes, setting up busing, preparing spaces, ensuring that students are prepared for their visits. And so, now we’d like to say, “Thank you.” Thank you for all you do in the course of our work, but moreover for all you do every day to prepare our youth for success." - Tom Barry, Assistant Director of Education, Cradle of Aviation Museum

The mission of the Cradle of Aviation Museum is to engage all ages in the exploration of our aerospace heritage by preserving and displaying Long Island’s contribution to air and space travel; and to inspire, motivate, and stimulate our youth to be the next generation of aerospace scientists and engineers. The mission is achieved through a growing exhibit collection and innovative educational programs for students and professional development for teachers.
