Education Day began at the 2005 North American International Auto Show as an opportunity for schools to participate in a positive and valuable educational experience.

Now in its fifteenth year, 2019 NAIAS Education Day (NED) welcomes school groups of all ages including college level and promises to offer even more for those schools in attendance. Young minds will have the opportunity to become further engaged by taking part in pre-and post-show lesson plans and activity sheets and by taking part in hands-on activities offered at many exhibits throughout the day.

NED participants enjoy a discounted school ticket price of $13.00 per person which includes a lunch coupon for pizza, chips and soft drink. You may choose to pay by credit card or by check. We are frequently updating this link with the most current information on the day's events, so please check often.

There are no refunds for this event for any reason. If unforeseen circumstances prevent your school's attendance, call 248-643-0250 and we will be happy to transfer your tickets to another day of the 2019 Public Show.
