Educational Field Trips
Field trips offer a unique learning experience for children of all ages.
- In the Visitor Center, students learn about the passenger and crew members aboard United 93, the events of 9/11, and the Flight 93 Story through exhibits and displays
- Weather and time permitting, students walk the allee trail to Memorial Plaza for a Ranger led program.
- From the Plaza, students visit the wall of names to pay respect to the 40 passenger and crew members.
- Students can visit the Tower of Voices, a monumental, 93-foot-tall musical instrument holding 40 wind chimes, representing the voices of the 40 passenger and crew members.
Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial are pleased to partner with the National Park Service to offer on-site educational field trips.
Through the generous support of Education Tax Improvement Businesses in the state of PA and gifts from our generous donors the Friends can offer an education scholarship for qualifying schools.
- Scholarships are awarded for students grades 4-12 who participate in a ranger led field trip on-site at Flight 93 National Memorial.
- Scholarships are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. There is no guarantee of assistance, however, applications will be accepted while there is money in the fund.
- In awarding scholarship funds, priority is given to school districts (public, parochial or independent) with at least 30% of students receiving free or reduced lunches. Priority is also given to schools who have not previously received scholarship funding.
