The "Education Days" Program was developed by the Pittsburgh Pirates in conjunction with Kittanning Middle School, Carson Middle School and Greg Toth with Great American Opportunities in 2007. The Pennsylvania Department of Education has certified this program to be used by students in grades 6-8 throughout our region.
Eligible students come to PNC Park to attend a Pirates home day game on designated dates. While at the ballpark, and before the game, students participate in a "treasure hunt" where they look for answers to questions in the specially-designed workbook.
Pirates Charities wishes to thank our underwriting partners -- PPG Industries Foundation, Trib Total Media and Great American Opportunities -- for their generous support of this educational (and fun) initiative!
