STEM Camps & Classes

Pearson Field Education Center’s programming has always sought to engage and inspire kids to challenge their knowledge base, learn new concepts, and consider careers in STEM fields including aviation. As we continue our mission and to remain vibrant and relevant to the community we serve PFEC has an opportunity to evolve to meet the needs of our community. Positive things are on the horizon for us! As PFEC enters a new phase we will be transitioning to new and exciting programing, and introducing our community to new partners.  Our staff is working on plans for this summer’s camp opportunities. Please check back in April 2022, for information on exciting summer opportunities at PFEC.

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.

Mission

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.

Vision

  • We envision PFEC 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 PFEC 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.
