Tired of boring field trips? Education Day at the DBAP provides elementary, middle, and high school students the unique opportunity to learn outside of a classroom setting. The Bulls strive to bring excitement and fun-filled learning to the ballpark. Also, the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown has offered comprehensive, step-by-step curriculum lesson plans that cover a wide range of subject matters and grades to be utilized during Education Days. Additionally, these lesson plans are aligned with the Common Core State Standards and many of them support Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL) goals.

We will have numberous educational and interactive learning stations set up along the ballpark's concourse to enhance the Education Day experience, as well as providing opportunities to participate in on-field promotional activities. Some highlights from last season included interactive stations by:
- Mad Science of the Triangle
- Morehead Planetarium and Science Center
- Duke Lemur Center
- Durham Sheriff Dept. Bomb Squad
- Durham Museum of Life & Science
The Durham Bulls strive to make Education Day an event that all school groups can enjoy. So, ALL student and chaperone tickets are just $4.50 + tax, with one complimentary teacher ticket per class. Also, $4.50 + tax box lunches will be available. A box lunch consists of a hot dog, chips, snack and a juice box. Vegetarian options are a veggie dog or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Please note that box lunch requests must be made at the time of the ticket order and will not be available on game day. Furthermore, no outside food or beverage is permitted in the ballpark, so please inform students that our concession stands will be open for those who do not wish to purchase a box lunch.
