Educational Field Trips

The Benefits of Field Trips: A Unique Learning Experience for all Students in Grades 4-12. Field trips are an excellent way for children to learn in a new and exciting environment.

  1. At the Visitor Center, students can explore exhibits and displays to discover more about the passengers and crew of United 93, the events of 9/11, and the Flight 93 Story.
  2. If the weather and time permit, students can take a walk along the Allee trail to Memorial Plaza for a Ranger-led program.
  3. From there, they can pay their respects to the 40 passengers and crew members at the Wall of Names.
  4. Additionally, students can visit the Tower of Voices, a towering 93-foot musical instrument that holds 40 wind chimes, each representing the voices of the 40 passengers and crew members.

Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial have collaborated with the National Park Service to provide educational field trips on the memorial site.

Provided by the Education Tax Improvement Businesses in the state of PA and the contributions of our kind donors, Friends have established a scholarship program to support eligible 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.
