The Manchester Monarchs, in partnership with the New Hampshire State Board of Education and the New Hampshire Department of Education, hosted the third annual Monarchs Education Day on Wednesday, November 14, 2012. This event reflects the Monarchs continued commitment to New Hampshire’s youth and their education. It was a fun and educational day that students will never forget. On this day, the Verizon Wireless Arena became more than just an entertainment venue, it was the largest classroom in New Hampshire.
Upon arriving at the game, each participating student received a workbook. This tool incorporated all the educational aspects of the American Hockey League while harnessing the excitement of the great sport of hockey. Students used their math skills to calculate how many points certain players scored last season, their geography skills to identify a player’s hometown, their knowledge of New Hampshire history which has become the Monarchs players’ new home, their critical thinking skills to solve word puzzles, and much more!
As soon as the students entered the arena, the learning began. On the concourse, students found exhibits focusing on Health & Wellness, Geography, Math, Reading and Science.
It is the mission of the Manchester Monarchs to be a pillar of the community while providing wholesome and economical family entertainment.
