Chat with a RangerInterested in diving deeper into the Wright brothers story? Schedule a Chat with a Ranger! This 30-minute virtual call with a staff member at Wright Brothers National Memorial is the perfect opportunity for your students to seek answers to all of their Wright brothers related questions. We recommend each class prepares 8-10 questions to ask the ranger that will guide the conversation. This session can be a stand-alone interaction with a ranger or a follow up to the Virtual Field Trip or one of our Virtual-Friendly Lesson Plans.
