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, Charlie, and Echo. 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, Charlie, Echo or Delta
30 Min: STEM Celebration Demo
Optional Add-Ons: a planetarium show, Lunch Under the B-36, Simulator Rides, visit to the Gift Shop and Dog Tags can be selected to enhance your day

Missions for Pre-School & Day Care
New for 2015: ECHO flight (January 17 through May 15) – a tour and hands-on engineering session featuring the traveling exhibit Tech City.
Many aspects of our daily lives are designed and maintained by engineers—from the buildings we work in to traffic on the Internet. This exhibition from Sciencenter in Ithaca, New York, highlights the engineering that makes Tech City work. Twelve highly interactive exhibit stations present real-world problems that can be solved using an engineering approach. Hands-on activities and multimedia experiences appeal to a variety of ages and learning styles.
Our team 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, $0 per teacher (two free per class), and $7.00 per chaperone
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.
