Boeing will celebrate its 100th anniversary July 15, 2016. Inspiring the next generation of innovators is key to carrying on the company’s tradition of achievement for the next 100 years. Engineering and manufacturing companies like Boeing need creative people with technical know-how to maintain and grow their innovative edge. How do you rekindle the wonder of flight in young people and inspire them to contribute to the future of aerospace? By getting them to actually make a flying object with their own hands.
Introducing The Boeing Flypaper Project. Boeing knows when you combine art and science you build something better. So, we had Boeing engineers build better paper airplanes. Their designs were then turned into art. Then into posters. The design of the plane dictates the design of the poster. The instructions on how to fold the poster into the plane dictate the graphics. Beautiful on the wall. Beautiful in flight.
