September 5, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Saturday, repeating until March 27, 2021
Pearson Field Education Center’s Open Saturdays are held every Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. All guests must make a reservation online or by phone to attend Open Saturday for a 75 minute visit. The entry fee for Open Saturdays is $7 for ages 6 and above. To make a reservation, call 360-992-1818 or go to www.pearsonfieldeducation.org/programs/open-saturday/.
The center features a flight simulator lab, vertical wind table, glider building, historic airplanes and collections on display, and various educational programs. Other than Open Saturday, Pearson Field Education Center is not yet open to the public during its regular, pre-COVID hours.
The education center has made modifications to its facilities and operating procedures to help protect visitors and staff. These include masks to be worn by staff and guests, hand-sanitizing stations, enhanced cleaning protocols, social distancing signage, and online reservations to manage the total number of people in the center at one time. Prepackaged hands-on STEM activities and supplies will be provided to reduce the spread of germs through surface contact and doors and windows will be open to provide fresh air.
Thanks to a donation from iQ for Kids, iQ Credit Union’s non-profit fund, admission is free for those currently receiving SNAP food assistance benefits. Verify your information when you make your reservation and show your valid EBT card and photo ID at the front desk when you arrive. Valid for up to four individuals per EBT card.
