Introducing the Friends of Flight 93 9/11 Classroom Speaker Series
Friends of Flight 93 9/11 Classroom Speaker Series is a unique interactive video presentation program that connects students with Flight 93 family members, first responders, and 9/11 community members. It provides a platform for students to learn and ask questions about a day they were not alive to witness.
In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, America was forever changed. However, today's youth have no recollection of this tragic day. The program aims to educate and inform young Americans about how 9/11 changed history and how the Flight 93 National Memorial will always honor the passengers and crew of Flight 93 in the heart of Pennsylvania.
Flight 93 National Memorial offers free state-of-the-art distance learning programs for classrooms, senior centers and adult learning institutions. Designed for the virtual education of students and groups not physically in a classroom, distance learning allows rangers to reach audiences beyond the marble and granite at the Memorial. Programs are conducted via videoconferencing platforms, such as Zoom and MS Teams.
