The Durham Bulls are pleased to invite you, your teachers, and students to participate in our annual Education Day celebrations at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Due to the popularity of these events, please get your orders in early so you can secure the best seats; orders will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Education Day dates will be announced on a later date.
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.
