Educational Events & Field Trips

Wednesday, May 18, 2016 & Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Kennywood has the three R’s covered - reading, ‘riting, and rollercoasters! The park is your interactive classroom for two special days in May that are dedicated to educators. Kennywood’s attractions and history provide the ultimate backdrop for lessons in physics, math, art, and more. We will also put careers in the spotlight and how they apply to the world of the amusement park.

Special guests at this year’s Education Days include WPXI meteorologist Stephen Cropper, the National Weather Service, Carnegie Science Center, the Pittsburgh Glass Center, the National Aviary, and more.

Attendance is limited, so please register early so your students won’t miss this unique learning opportunity. This Web page will be updated as we add more exciting features to the Education Days schedule! Call 412-464-9931 Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, or complete the online registration form.

So, why do your students think they deserve to get out of the classroom and come to Kennywood?

The video should end with the phrase, “We should go to Kennywood because…” The most creative class will receive tickets to one of Kennywood’s Education Days in May and a transportation allowance (up to $175).
