Registration is now open. The 9/11 Memorial Museum invites teachers and students to participate in "Anniversary in the Schools," a free webinar commemorating the 17th anniversary of 9/11. The webinar, broadcast from inside the 9/11 Memorial Museum, connects students and teachers from around the world with museum staff and guest speakers to learn about the attacks and the importance of commemoration.
Participants will be introduced to exhibitions within the museum, hear personal stories about the attacks from first responders and survivors, and have the opportunity to ask questions through a live chat with museum staff.
Speakers this year will include:
* Chief Joseph W. Pfeifer, current Chief of Counterterrorism and Emergency Preparedness for the FDNY and the first chief to arrive at the World Trade Center on the morning of 9/11,
* Lolita Jackson, a survivor of both the 1993 and 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Center,
* Scott Strauss, a New York City Police Department officer who helped rescue a Port Authority Police Department officer trapped under debris after the collapse of the Twin Towers, and;
* Lila Nordstrom, a student on 9/11 at Stuyvesant High School, located next to the World Trade Center, who founded StuyHealth, an advocacy group for young adults impacted by 9/11 and its aftermath.
The 35-minute program will be broadcast on-demand beginning TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2018. The livechat will be offered on September 11 and September 12, 2018.
