The 9/11 Memorial & Museum hopes to inspire people throughout the world to commemorate the anniversary of September 11, 2001, in their own communities.

While the annual commemoration is held at the 9/11 Memorial each year, communities around the globe are choosing to honor the lives of the victims of the attacks throughout the year and in a variety of ways.

Educational programs allow students to learn about the events of 9/11, while also participating in memorialization and remembrance. At the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, educational specialists offer artifact-based tours for students to engage with the story of September 11 in an age-appropriate learning experience. As the number of students who have a lived memory of the attacks steadily declines, it is more crucial than ever to encourage them to explore this history of 9/11.

Programs like the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s Anniversary in the Schools webinar introduces students to the events of 9/11 through personal stories of survivors and artifacts from the Museum. If participating on Sept. 11, students and teachers can ask questions about the attacks through a live chat with Museum staff.

Register for the Anniversary in the Schools webinar today.
