With our customizable cross-curricular field trips, there is programming to satisfy large number of learning goals. Our Field four field trip offerings are Science in Space, Engineering of Flight, Science of Flight and WWII/Cold War for each grade level.  The Field Trips vary from 2 to 4 hours depending on your selection.

Our team will assist in building a great Field Trip for your students. Schools must schedule a field trip at least two weeks in advance. There is no minimum number of students required, although the museum requests that the total number of students not exceed 100 students per group. Groups larger than 100 students must request special permission from the Education Director prior to scheduling a field trip.

Late Arrival Policy | Your school field trip reserves time with our Education Staff, with this in consideration, we cannot guarantee staff or content for late arrivals. A 15 minute grace period will be observed. We recommend arriving 15 minutes prior to the begin of your tour to check-in and use the facilities.

Pricing |  $7.00 per student, $0 per teacher (two free per class), and $0 per chaperone (one for each 20 students).

Payment | Payment can be processed via credit card, cash or check. Full payment is due prior to your field trip. No refunds for weather or special circumstances; we will instead reschedule your field trip for another date.
