Educational Activities for Kids

We love igniting imagination, creating an awesome atmosphere for exploration and being there when new and exciting information is discovered. The Air Zoo offers dozens of opportunities on and off line to get kids and their families engaged and learning.  Check out child-specific opportunities below and see what best fits your family!   

Homeschool Discovery

Homeschool Discovery Days are the perfect addition to any homeschool curriculum. The Air Zoo’s homeschool programs are designed to fulfill both Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Michigan Science Standards with dynamic, hands-on lesson plans and interactive demonstrations and tours. Prepare for your classes and follow up to reinforce concepts with the pre- and post-lesson activities available on our website!

Preschool STEAM Days

Preschool STEAM Days are designed to give young children and their adult chaperones a taste of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). These fun, hands-on, interactive activities will leave your young scientist wanting to explore even more at home! See offerings now!

Scouting Info

The Air Zoo works extensively with all levels of Scouts BSA, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts offering the best scout programming in West Michigan! With classes spanning the spectrum of science, space and aviation, the Air Zoo offers multiple opportunities for scouts to earn awards and fulfill merit badge requirements. While we have a variety of special events and classes scheduled throughout the year, we also offer scouting organizations customized events and experiences! Learn more!

Overnight Stays

Our Overnight Stays are designed to give your group an after-hours experience like no other! Grab your sleeping bag and land under the SR-71B Blackbird because you're in for an overnight adventure! Choose from space- or aviation-themed overnight programs! Overnight Stay programs are fun for any group, but can also meet a number of requirements for both the Scouts BSA Aviation or Space Exploration merit badges, the Girl Scout Detectives Badge or Cub Scout Astronomy Belt Loop. Our overnight programs also meet certain elective requirements for Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts (leaders are responsible for recording applicable accomplishments). Student overnights can also be adapted to work with your curriculum. Contact our Group & Events Coordinator for available dates!
