Founded in 1989, the Delaware AeroSpace Education Foundation (DASEF), an independent non-profit education organization having 501(c)(3) status, functions to raise the visibility and value of K-12 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education to meet intellectual and workplace needs of the future. DASEF implements successful programs using proven instructional strategies to motivate, engage, educate and inspire people from diverse background and communities in Delaware.
The DASEF vision is driven by the belief that "Wisdom Begins with Wonder." Capitalizing on natural curiosity through activities that include a problem solving component enriches the learning process for participants.
DASEF has established itself as an innovative and progressive organization with the vision and resources required to link contemporary aeronautic, space, and engineering themes with traditional school subjects to increase interest in science and technology.
