ICE School (In Class Education) or as many students have affectionately dubbed it: Incredibly Cool Education, has been an Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) initiative since the 2002-03 school year.
ICE School is one of Edmonton's Inquiring Minds sites allowing teachers to follow curriculum outcomes taught in the classroom and turn those concepts into real world understanding for their students. Students are given the opportunity to move their classroom for an entire week into the world of Rogers Place and Edmonton's Ice District. The classroom is located on the southwest corner of Rogers Place.
The ICE School learning process begins when students receive their journals in September. The students carry this journal to record, reflect and sketch as they move through each day. The journals are an invaluable tool for the students who can use this resource long after their ICE School experience to delve deeper into the topics they explored during their week.
The week-long educational adventure spurs the imagination and captivates the curiosity of every ICE School student. There is total engagement and that's how learning happens! Students will discover the behind- the scenes intricacies involved in hosting games and large events at Rogers Place and discover the history and beauty of our city.
