Education Center on Pearson Field Reopens with New Hours
As of January 2023, Education Center on Pearson Field is now open every Saturday from 10am-3pm and remains free to attend.
The Historic Trust and Airway Science for Kids are excited to announce that programming at the Trust’s Pearson Field Education Center (PFEC) is now operated under the leadership of Airway Science for Kids (ASK). This regional partnership merges education programs and resources to expand the Education Center’s reach to inspire youth to pursue aviation STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) education and careers.
The expanded offerings at Pearson Field Education Center include:
- weekly open Saturday programs,
- after-school programs,
- partnership with Cascadia Technical Academy’s Aviation Technology program, and
- summer camps for youth in Southwest Washington.
The partnership with The Historic Trust builds on Airway Science for Kids’ current STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) education and training programs at its North Portland Aerospace Training Center, at Hillsboro and Aurora airports, and online curriculum.
