For Schools & Educators

Group of students touring the Space Shuttle Exhibit

For school groups, including Home School, the Education Division offers many hands-on programs, guided tours, scavenger hunts and much more. These aerospace activities provide an excellent opportunity to engage your students in STEM-based curriculum as well as history, social studies, art and language arts. Whether we are introducing a new concept or reinforcing something already taught in the classroom, our aviation and space programs will educate and inspire your students to excel in all their classroom lessons and projects! Most of these programs are free or require only a small materials fee. Please be sure to read all of the detailed information regarding how to schedule, policies and guidelines, and program descriptions before submitting your registration form. All programs should be booked at least four weeks in advance.
