Discover Pearl Harbor is a two-day, one-night program for youth ages 12-15 that combines engaging, aviation-related STEM activities within the historically significant context of the Pearl Harbor sites. The cry, “Remember Pearl Harbor,” remains a vital theme, as it is now a call to action for youth to learn these timeless stories of courage, resiliency, and innovation, and to use the lessons of WWII to create a more peaceful world.
Participants begin the program at WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument. A visit to the USS Arizona Memorial helps them gain a greater appreciation for the peace and friendship that has been forged between former enemies. The program continues at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, where the legacy of Pearl Harbor is shared through guided tours, hands-on activities, and team assignments.
In the evening, students stay onboard the Missouri Battleship Memorial, engaging in activities that emphasize the historical precedent for peace-making that emerged from WWII.
On Day Two, students return to Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor to experience an array of learning challenges that emphasize the need for collaboration and critical thinking. Discover Pearl Harbor ends with a closing ceremony of remembrance and honor in historic Hangar 79.
Program fee is $225/person ($202.50 for Museum Members), and includes meals, snacks, overnight accommodations and program on the Battleship Missouri, program materials, transportation between historic sites, and a souvenir T-shirt.
Registration is limited to 50 youth.
