Save the date! Join us for our annual LEAF coaches workshop! This year's workshop will be held on:

Raisbeck Aviation High School, Seattle, WA

Learn more about the LEAF project, gain strategies for teaching the project to students, network with other coaches and teachers...and build and fly your own airplane!  Registration will open soon!
We are excited to see our coaches and teams today at our annual LEAF Fly-Off at the Museum of Flight!

Our Fly-Off will begin promptly at 5pm, so we recommend that teams maximize their time and check-in by 4:45pm.

We can't wait to see you there!  Happy Flying!
We've recently encountered some difficulty with our current supplier for the motors required for the fly-off.  If you're having the same troubles, we've got a solution for you!

Our new supplier, Teacher Geek, is ready to help!  If you still need to order your motors, please click here to be taken to their page.  Note that they charge $8 flat rate shipping, so you might want to pick up a few extras just in case.

Looking forward to seeing you and your teams at the Fly-Off on December 1!
