STEM fueled fun powers new school field trips for 2014-2015!
The SASM Education Department is offering a slate of brand new programming built around content modules or “Flights” for grades K-12. These modules are inspired by our collection, STEM, and are based on Nebraska State Standards.
We offer three different flight missions for each grade: Alpha, Bravo and Charlie. The flights are delivered as part of a package tour which follows this basic structure:
Arrival at the SASM
15 Min: Introduction to the SASM
15 Min: Plane of the Month Tour
60 Min: Flight Mission Alpha, Bravo, or Charlie
30 Min: STEM Celebration Demo [Super Cool Science or ZAP]
Departure (Planetarium Shows, Lunch Under the B-36, Simulator Rides, visit to the Gift Shop and Dog Tags are additional add-ons that you can select to enhance your day)

To schedule a field trip, call Karen at 402-944-3100 ext 208.
Karen will assist in building a great Field Trip for your students. To help plan logistics, a field trip will typically last two hours. 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 and $4.00 per adult.
Payment | Payment is due prior or on the day of the field trip. Payment can be processed via credit card or check. Trips that cost more than $300 must be prepaid. No refunds are issued for amounts less than $25.
Staying for lunch? Students are welcome to eat their Brown Bag lunch at our cafeteria located under the massive wingspan of the B-36 in Hangar A.
Want to ride Simulators? Give your students a wild ride on our simulators. $5 per student.
Want a Memento? Dog Tags are available for your students. They make great take-home gifts to remember their time at the Strategic Air and Space Museum. $5 per student (plus tax). Please complete and send the Dog Tag Order Form prior to your visit. School groups are also welcome to visit the gift shop ($5 -$20 allowance recommended for students).
