Learning Center Without Walls
Under a large white tent on a windswept ridge on September 8-9, 2012, the public glimpsed the future of learning at the memorial. As part of the September 11 Observance, the Friends of Flight 93 sponsored the first programs of the "Learning Center Without Walls" at the future site of the Learning Center.
