The Ducks will host its largest S.C.O.R.E. (Scholastic Curriculum of Recreation & Education) program event of the year: the First Flight Field Trip. Over 15,000 elementary students (grades 3-6) from 160 schools will converge upon Honda Center this Tuesday, Feb. 25 for a day of education and hockey, with this year’s theme entitled “Cool Like Ice.” The award-winning educational program will place the emphasis on ice and the science it takes to make the ice rink at Honda Center or simply the ice cubes made in residential refrigerators. The Ducks players will speak to students about the importance of ice in the sport of hockey and lead on-ice demonstrations relating to this theme. The field trip is divided into two parts. The “Playground” segment will take place from 8-10:30 a.m. in which children can experience the different properties of ice through interactive exhibits in the Honda Center parking lot. The “Classroom” segment of the event will take place from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in Honda Center’s arena bowl. Students and teachers will travel from as far away as High Desert and the Imperial Valley for this one-of-a-kind educational experience.

During the First Flight Field Trip, students will refer to a workbook which explores how the properties of ice play a role in the students daily lives as well as on the rink at Honda Center. With the combination of the First Flight workbook and live interviews with players, students will learn about the different states of matter, heat transfer, and friction as is relates to the sport of hockey. Both live and taped segments from players and coaches will appear on the HondaVision scoreboard during practice, which will help to further explain the concepts found in the workbook lessons.

In addition, the Ducks have partnered with many local educational organizations and civic-minded corporations to present more than 60 hands-on exhibits that supplement lessons found in the First Flight workbook (a complete list of participants is included below). Approximately 150 volunteers are scheduled to assist students with educational instruction on the “Playground.”

Recognized as an educational event for all ages by the California State Assembly and as a contributor to informal education by the National Science Teachers' Association, the First Flight Field Trip is completely free to participating schools and students, and the curriculum has been designed to meet the state's educational content standards for grades 3-6. The S.C.O.R.E. program was developed in 2005 with the goal of promoting and cultivating healthy living and academic excellence to all students in Southern California.
