Air Zoo winter science camper in space suitThe Air Zoo is dedicated to connecting students with science and technology through positive, engaging, and immersive experiences that align with educational standards and inspire exciting career choices and pathways. Made possible in part by the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation, The Dorothy U. Dalton Foundation, the Battle Creek Community Foundation, and individual donors, the Science Inspiration Fund was developed to break down the economic barriers that greatly inhibit many schools, community organizations, and youth groups from taking an active part in Air Zoo's exceptional educational programming. Additional grant funding for field trip transportation is offered by Michigan Youth Arts.
