OPEN SATURDAY IS BACK!
Beginning on March 13th, Pearson Field Education Center will be open once again for Open Saturday! Our Open Saturday programming is generously sponsored by Comcast, and we have four time slots available throughout the day for twelve people each. Walk-in reservations are also available at the door as space allows. We have cleaning procedures in place to ensure the health and safety of our patrons and individual activity kits for make-and-take STEM learning. Grab your face coverings and make a reservation to join us for fun and learning at Pearson Field Education Center!
Let’s Take Flight!
Learn more about Pearson Field Education Center and the youth we serve. We are proud to provide STEM education in a challenging and unique environment, where kids are preparing their flight plans for the future.
For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.

Through aviation, we inspire youth to pursue education and careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields, while instilling an appreciation for the people, events, and innovations of historic Pearson Field.
- We envision Pearson Field Education Center as a nationally recognized model for experiential STEM based K-12 education, uniquely combined with the appreciation and inspiration provided by integrating the rich history of Pearson Field and the people and events that came before us.
- We envision Pearson Field Education Center and historic Pearson Field as the entry point to a thriving STEM/aviation cluster within a 100-mile radius of the oldest continuously operating airfield in the Pacific Northwest and one of the two oldest continuously operating airfields in the country. This includes locally available access to education at all levels, a healthy and growing family of STEM/aviation related businesses and the jobs they offer.
