Field Trip Fun at Six Flags Great America

When it comes to engaging students in math, science, and physics, few places offer an immersive experience quite like Six Flags Great America. We partner with teachers and administrators each year to take learning to new heights through unique educational opportunities. 

Welcome to the Science Lab

Your students will SCREAM for the chance to study physics, math, and science while observing (and riding) world-class coasters and thrill rides. But what sets these educational days apart are the top-notch resources available to teachers and educators. 

We’ve made it easy to pair your curriculum with FREE Six Flags student workbooks and teacher manuals. Plus, you can adapt your experience to meet the learning objectives of your group. Introduce the physics of motion in amusement park rides or dive deep into physics equations using data-collection apps.

Tailored experiences throughout the park make it easy to plan a STEM field trip your students won’t soon forget. Our educational programs can be geared toward a wide range of ages and abilities, as students explore topics that include:

  • The physics of motion in amusement park rides 
  • Roller coaster engineering 
  • The science of amusement park rides 
  • Physics principles in roller coaster design

Whatever you choose to study, students can engage with educators and park staff who are excited to show them how STEM concepts can be applied to park attractions.
