Helping Children Understand Flight 93
Flight 93 National Memorial recognizes children may struggle to understand what happened on September 11, 2001, especially since adults also struggle to understand the events of that day. With assistance from our partners in education, a less complicated narrative of the Flight 93 story was developed to help adults better explain what happened here. Ask for the children's version of the Flight 93 story at the Visitor Center (coming soon for web).
Junior Ranger Program
This program is designed for children ages 6-12 making a visit to Flight 93 National Memorial. Children can explore the memorial and learn about Flight 93 through 11 activities of varying difficulty. The program also provides a narrative to help explain the Flight 93 story to younger audiences. The Junior Ranger Program is available upon request at the Visitor Center and at the Memorial Plaza.
