“Our students had so much fun at the Education Center. It was a great experience for them! You and your staff do a great job; we can’t thank you enough!” – Traci B., teacher
“Loved our homeschooling field trip at the Pearson Field Education Center the other day. The facilitators were very knowledgeable and the volunteer crew were helpful, funny, and insightful. The kids got to make crafts, climb inside of old planes, and even fly a simulator. Amazing time. Thank you so much.” – Vanessa W., Parent
Located on Pearson Field, one of the oldest operating airports in the United States, students have an opportunity to get up close and personal with aviation during their field trip to Pearson Field Education Center. This tour begins with a group lesson that answers the question “How do airplanes fly?” Afterwards, students explore and learn more about the science and history of flight by taking a tour of the hangar, experimenting with the flight controls in a historic aircraft, completing a STEM lesson about the science of flight and fly an aircraft on the flight simulators. This field trip complements Next Generation Science Standards’ force and motion units.
This two-hour long field trip is for groups of 12-48 students and can be scheduled from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm or 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm. Space is available for students to stay for lunch.
This field trip is $5.00 per student. Teachers and chaperones are free of charge.
