The First Flight Field Trip is just one facet of the nationally award-winning Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E.
(Scholastic Curriculum of Recreation & Education) Program. It was developed in 2005 with the ultimate goal of promoting healthy living and academic excellence to all students in Southern California. In addition, the S.C.O.R.E. program has received awards including the National Science Teachers Association’s Faraday Communicator Award and the Celebrate Literacy Award from the International Reading Association.
The Anaheim Ducks invite Southern California schools to participate in the First Flight event at no cost to the schools or students. Children and teachers alike will be entertained by on-ice activities that include interviews with players, educational videos, and a skills event featuring the entire Ducks roster. Throughout the event, players will cover concepts found in the First Flight Field Trip workbook.
