AIR ZOO AEROSPACE & SCIENCE EXPERIENCE FIELD TRIP DETAILS
Ready for interactive STEAM education to be taken to the next level?
We offer nearly 40 field trip options for students from Pre-K to 12th grade, including hands-on activities and content about aviation, biology, chemistry, earth science, electricity, forensic science, history, meteorology, physics, and space science. Your students might build their own airplanes, create slime, study the stars, or build a roller coaster!
We offer tours led by our expert docents, who can tell you all about historic aircraft, high-flying rockets, the International Space Station, and more! The entire Air Zoo exhibit floor is an amazing place to wander, learn, and enjoy amusement park flight-themed rides as you discover the wonder of flight.
Did you know the Air Zoo can also bring its programs directly to you? Imagine a fascinating field trip, but without any of the travel hassle for you and your students! Our professional educators can bring almost every single one of our field trips straight into your classroom with our Science on the Go programs.
Financial assistance for group visits, field trips, and Science on the Go programs is available through the Air Zoo’s Science Inspiration Scholarship Fund! The fund was designed to break down economic barriers that would otherwise stop many schools, community organizations, and youth groups from participating in the Air Zoo’s exceptional educational programming. Interested educators should apply for funding through the Air Zoo’s website.
Educators who have experienced the Air Zoo’s unique hands-on approach to learning find that whether they travel to us, or host our educators at their home location, our innovative programs engage students and inspire them to further explore the world of science and the careers that await them.
