Toledo will host its second-annual Rocket Women's Basketball Educational Day on Wednesday, Feb. 20 in conjunction with its game vs. Northern Illinois at 11:00 a.m. in Savage Arena.

 Schools from Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan (public, private, charter, homeschooler) for 1st – 8th grade students, teachers, administrators, and chaperones are invited to spend the day in Savage Arena with the Rockets, as well as celebrate education and learning. The entire day will be organized to show youth the importance of education, and how what they are learning in the classroom can be related to sports and other fun aspects of life.

 Every group will receive Rocket Educational Workbooks for their students & teachers that are appropriate for their class grade and educational level. Workbooks will be 1st – 4th grade and 5th – 8th grade and will be based upon the Ohio and Michigan educational standards covering math, geography, problem solving, English, reading, music, art, physical education and more.
