Our Story

DreamLearners

Boeing South Carolina’s DreamLearners educational program has reached more than 500,000 students and community partners since 2012. DreamLearners offers the opportunity for South Carolina students in 5th grade and students in specialized Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) based programs to visit Boeing South Carolina and learn more about careers in aerospace, STEM and advanced manufacturing. Boeing also offers the opportunity for classroom speaking events, and visits from teachers, administrators and faculty. Special sessions are scheduled monthly on Saturdays for Boeing South Carolina teammates, their families and friends.

NEW! We are preparing to open our 2020 Spring DreamLearners program calendar. In an effort to provide access to a broader range of schools and organizations, we will be using an application process for groups to request participation in the program here on the Boeing site. Applications will be reviewed and schools/organizations will then be invited to register for their preferred date. It is our hope this new application process will allow more groups an opportunity to take part in the program. If you are interested in participating in the spring, please click the link below enter your school’s application and information. Applications are due no later than Friday, December 13, 2019. Schools will subsequently be notified with an invitation to register no later than Friday, Dec. 20.

RENEWABLE ENERGY

On the thin-film solar laminate panel installation on the Boeing South Carolina Final Assembly building:

The installation of thin-film solar laminate panels on the Boeing South Carolina Final Assembly building was the largest rooftop solar installation in South Carolina and the Southeast by production capacity at the time of the April 2011 announcement.

Approximately 10 acres of thin-film laminate panels (18,095 individual panels) are installed on the Final Assembly building roof.

This was the sixth largest rooftop thin-film solar laminate installation in the United States by production capacity at the time of the April 2011 announcement.

The total square footage of the solar generation system is equal to approximately eight football fields.

The Boeing South Carolina solar installation is capable of producing 2.6 megawatts of energy at peak capacity at a single point in time – up to 20 percent of the site’s total energy needs. The sum of energy produced over a year is 3,500 megawatt hours – equivalent to the annual usage of 250 residential homes.

Each panel is 23.25 sq. ft. (216” by 15.5”). Laid end to end, the total number of panels would span more than 61 miles.

The peak energy produced by the solar installation could instantly light 200,000 energy efficient light bulbs (13-watt compact fluorescent light bulbs).

Installation was completed in fall 2011 and began operating at that time.
