Flight 93 National Memorial

is the final resting place of the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 who stopped the worst terrorist attack in U.S. History on September 11, 2001. The individual courage and bravery of these ordinary people saved thousands of lives when they fought back against terrorist efforts to hijack and fly their plane into the
U.S. Capitol Building, home to the United States Congress.

This year marks 20 years since 9/11 and there is now an entire generation that has no memory of that tragic day or an understanding of the significance of Flight 93 National Memorial. Our objective is to deliver 9/11 education resources and activities to today’s youth in the classroom using 21st century technology.
