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. These programs gave visitors a taste of the kind of programming that is planned for the Learning Center. Construction begins Spring 2013.

The "Learning Center Without Walls" programming consisted of a series of panel discussions that can be explored through the videos below:
