Who We Are

The DJNF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to develop programs that stimulate young people’s interest in STEM through aviation. Many of our volunteers are educators that extend from the community at Texas A&M. Though not all participants are Aggies, we pride ourselves in a sense of duty and dedication that align seamlessly with the Aggie core values. These were characteristics deeply valued by our namesake Dr. Jim Noel, and we continue to uphold his legacy.

We at the Noel Foundation believe that allowing students to interact and experience technical concepts in action generates an unprecedented level of interest and attention. In our previous programs, teachers have reported extremely positive results that stem directly from an exposure to our course. Air Fair activities are standards based and emphasize hands-on and inquiry learning strategies.
