Education on Wheels
Historic places generate excitement and curiosity about why they should be remembered. Visiting historic places offers valuable experience and information that can help bring history to life. It encourages imagination and helps students make important connections between social and scientific disciplines, and subjects relevant to their own lives.
The Education on Wheels grant program provides transportation of school children on Guam to War in the Pacific National Historical Park sites to experience and gain a greater understanding of the people involved in the Pacific Theater of World War II. Students not only learn more, they also come to appreciate the value of preserving their island's cultural, natural, and historical heritage.
