Materials for Teachers and Students

Each Spring and Fall, the Johnstown Inclined Plane hosts numerous school field trips from not only this area but from all over Pennsylvania as well.

We at the Incline believe in its role as an education tool for students of all ages. The Incline serves as an outdoor classroom for students studying our area’s industrial steel history, the physics of an inclined plane, and even the vegetation on our hillside trail.
