Educational Events & Field Trip Ideas

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 & Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Dear Educator:
Are you looking for fun field trip ideas or educational events to help motivate your students? Just plan to attend one of our education days: Wednesday, May 13 or Tuesday, May 19, 2015. Learn about Kennywood history and attractions with the physics, math, and architecture programs (available both days). May 13th also includes communication components while May 19 has additional science programs. See the Schedule of Events, letters from our Educational Partners, and Educational Materials created for your use prior to park arrival.

Because attendance is limited, please register early (even if your trip is not yet approved or you are uncertain of exact number attending). Simply phone 412-464-9931 Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM until 4:30 PM, or complete the online registration form. A confirmation, schedule and park map will be sent to you. Please call if you must cancel your reservation. FunDay tickets prices are $26.00 each. Groups will receive one free ticket for every 25 purchased. Tickets are sent on consignment in advance with a signature required. Please order the maximum number of tickets you might need. Unused tickets must be returned with settlement on outing day. Please don't hesitate to contact us at 412.464.9931 or email jmitko@kennywood.com with questions or requests.

Please note that closing time for May 13 is 5pm and closing time for May 19 is 6pm. Park will open at 8:30am on May 13 and at 9:30am on May 19.

Yours truly,
Jackie Mitko

EDUCATION DAYS CONTEST

This year, Kennywood will offer your students the opportunity to win a FREE field trip for a memorable day of learning and fun. Here’s how it works:

For nearly 120 years, Kennywood has provided Pittsburghers with a place for creating special memories and having unforgettable experiences. The indelible bond between Kennywood and its guests has created legions of ‘FANATICS’, including those who come to learn as part of education days. We’re asking students, either as a class or groups within a class, must create a 30-60 second video showing us how they are ‘FANATICS’ for education, learning, and, most important, Kennywood!

The winning class will receive tickets to one of Kennywood’s Education Days in May, a $175 transportation allowance and a special Kennywood Arrow to proudly display in the classroom.

Thank you to the schools who submitted videos for the Education Days Contest. Congratulations to the top five schools: Edison High School (Richmond, OH), Karns City High School (Karns City, PA), St. Louise de Marillac School (Pittsburgh, PA), Trinity High School (Washington, PA) and Valley High School (New Kensington, PA).

Vote for your favorite video here
