Education

Our education program is run by an on-site education team called ParkEDU. We are made up of NPS rangers and education specialists, with help from our partner, Pacific Historic Parks. In 2015, ParkEDU had the opportunity to serve nearly 27,000 students from Hawaii and beyond.

You can reach ParkEDU by phone (808-422-3320) from 8:00 to 2:00, Monday through Friday, and by email at valr_education@nps.gov. For answers to the most frequently asked questions about ParkEDU field trips, please check our FAQ page.

Field Trips

Field trips are a fun and education way to get your students immersed in the history and culture of this site. Our wide range of programs can teach students about the history of Pearl Harbor, the science of preservation, and the importance of community.

Curriculum

Here at WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument, we are continually working to expand the curriculum materials we have to offer our student visitors. ParkEDU's aim is to create an enriching and valuable experience for each and every student who comes our way.

Pre-Site Visits

A ParkEDU team member will come to your computer lab or classroom and give a history of the National Park Service, focusing on the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument site. We will also walk your students through the process of obtaining their Every Kid in a Park pass, which can emailed to the students, printed by the school, or printed at home.
