STEM Field Trips for Students
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics: these are the fastest growing fields in our modern society. In trying to demonstrate and encourage students to pursue these fields of study, teachers are getting creative with their teaching methods, getting students to think outside the box by taking students outside the classroom on educational STEM field trips. Give your students the opportunity of a lifetime to see the advancements of STEM over the years and the possibilities that lay before them. Son Tours offers educational science travel and STEM trips for students to experience the fascinating realm of these fields, taking students to laboratories, museums, universities, and other locations across the U.S. and in Europe.
Educational Travel in the United States for STEM Students
Whether you want to give your students a glimpse into the fields of ecology, geology, zoology, marine biology, engineering, space exploration, chemistry, astronomy, or virtually any other STEM field, we can help you plan an educational travel tour that will give students access to these fields like never before. With museums and labs at MIT, Harvard, Boston University, Drexel University, and more, students can take a look at what postsecondary studies might look like as well as the practical applications that advancements in science can have. With the variety of zoos and aquariums across the U.S., students can explore the vast wonders of the realm of biology. They can explore science in the skies, stars, and seas at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum in New York, or gaze into the wonders of the engineering and technology that goes into space travel at the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando.

Educational STEM Trips in Europe
Many are well aware of the various cultural landmarks, historical sites, and artistic experiences in Europe, but our neighbors across the pond have a vast scientific history and community, as well. The United Kingdom has a whole host of engineering exhibits, laboratories, science museums, space centers, and other impressive locations, like At-Bristol, the National Physical Laboratory, and the Museum of the History of Science. Across the English Channel, your students can explore museums covering medicine, geology, mineralogy, marine travel, air and space travel, architecture, industry, and so much more. They can visit la Palais de la Découverte (The Palace of Discovery), which houses exhibits on everything from astronomy and astrophysics to mathematics and chemistry, or they can play in Le Vaisseau (the Vessel), an interactive museum designed for educating children and young teenagers in the sciences.
We can also help you plan STEM field trips to Italy or Greece. In Italy, your students can explore the Città della Scienza (City of Science), an interactive science museum in Naples, the Museo Nazionale Scienza e Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci (the Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology) in Milan, or the Museo Galileo (Galileo Museum) in Florence, among other exciting destinations. Or, you can take your students on a journey to Greece to visit the Thessaloniki Science Center and Technology Museum, the Evgenidio Foundation, the Hellenic Motor Museum, the Museum of Geology and Paleontology of the Athens University, and several other fantastic locations that can inspire your students in the fields of STEM.
