Students in grades 6–12 are invited to join The National WWII Museum on the Manufacturing Victory Electronic Field Trip, on April 25, 2023, to learn about the inspiring story of the American Home Front effort that brought victory to the Allies and brought the country out of the Great Depression.
The whole class can get involved with this live broadcast by submitting questions in real time to the museum’s student reporters and educators, and they can test their history knowledge against the rest of the country by participating in polls throughout the Electronic Field Trip.
Students will get inspired as they hear the untold stories of how women and people of color came together to bring the United States to the forefront of manufacturing during World War II. And they will have the opportunity to explore galleries within The National WWII Museum and macro-artifacts from the museum’s collection, as well as WWII sites that still exist today across the United States.
Two live sessions are offered: Session 1: 9:00 a.m. (CT) and Session 2: 1:00 p.m. (CT). If you cannot join live, select “Watch Later” when registering. After the Electronic Field Trip has aired on April 25, you will receive a link to view the recording in your classroom at your convenience.
