Boeing to Develop Exhibits and Curriculum for San Antonio Museum of
Science and Technology

(SAN ANTONIO – Jan. 24, 2023) — An innovative new partnership
between Boeing [NYSE: BA] and the Kelly Heritage Foundation—an
educational nonprofit organization affiliated with Port San Antonio, on
whose behalf ASM Global manages Tech Port Center + Arena—will expand
STEM learning and workforce development across South Texas.

The seven-year partnership and $2.3 million investment will strengthen
the region’s STEM talent and enhance programming supported by the
foundation, including those developed by the San Antonio Museum of
Science and Technology (SAMSAT), headquartered at the Port’s tech
campus. In addition to this investment, Boeing has entered into a
separate agreement with ASM Global to rename the Tech Port Center +
Arena, a 130,000-square-foot multipurpose exhibition center, as the
Boeing Center at Tech Port.

ASM Global CEO and President Ron Benson said, “The newly anointed
Boeing Center at Tech Port is the only place on earth where
entertainment and education intersect in such a bold fashion. Innovators
of all ages will connect and create the technologies of the future in
dedicated ideation labs and coworking spaces, among other offerings in
the facility. And thrill-seekers will light up the Boeing Center at Tech
Port, which will host premier e-sports and live entertainment events.”

“Developing a highly-skilled, diverse workforce for tomorrow requires an
investment in one of Texas’ most valuable assets—students throughout
our communities. I’m thankful for Boeing’s commitment to our state
and can’t wait to see the next generation benefit from STEM
educational experiences that will result from this partnership” said
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott during a ceremony held today at SAMSAT announcing
the partnership.

For more than 20 years, Boeing’s aircraft maintenance and
modernization operation has been growing at the Port—just a few
hundred feet from Boeing Center at Tech Port—furthering its support of
an array of military and commercial aircraft.

The Kelly Heritage Foundation’s support of programming will focus on
developing skills that are key to the aerospace and space exploration
industries, including robotics, artificial intelligence,
three-dimensional printing, virtual reality, cybersecurity, visual
sensors and more.

As part of its continued role in the community, Boeing also entered into
a separate seven-year agreement directly with ASM Global to sponsor the
Port’s 130,000-square-foot multipurpose exhibition center now known as
the Boeing Center at Tech Port.

“From the start, our goal has been to find innovative ways to support
San Antonio’s development into one of the premier technology
communities in the nation” said Port President and CEO Jim
Perschbach. “The Boeing Center at Tech Port significantly furthers our
momentum by adding exciting and engaging aerospace-focused learning
experiences. We’re thankful that a leading global name in aerospace
like Boeing is further growing its deep roots in our community.”
