Education Days at Peoples Natural Gas Field allow students and teachers the chance to put down their pencils and pick up their gloves to catch a fun-filled morning with the Altoona Curve. Since local schools have placed a continued emphasis on educational field trips, the Curve are continuing to work on ideas to enhance educational value. Schools will be able to challenge and educate their students through curriculum, activities and contests in the Altoona Curve Educational Book. The books will provide teachers a bridge from the classroom to the ballpark as they relate players' stats, teams' geography and other baseball-related subjects to their daily lessons. The books have lessons and activities for kids of all ages and will be available to participating classes for use throughout the spring semester.
Education Day dates at PNG Field are TBD for 2021.
In addition to the books, the Curve enhance the educational experience with booth displays including educational organizations such as: Blair Co. Conservation District, Canoe Creek State Park, Railroaders Museum, Girl Scouts of Talus Rock Council, PA Rural Water Association, St. Francis University/ROCK program, Safe Kids Coalition/Safe Kids Blair Kids, PA State Police & Liquor Control and more! We invite you to come out to one, two or all three of the School Kids' Days. In the past, many schools have chosen to reward students for various achievements including perfect attendance, completing every homework assignment or for completing nine demanding months of class work.
