More than 5,000 students from schools across Central Iowa will fill Wells Fargo Arena on Feb. 9 to watch the Iowa Energy take on the Westchester Knicks for the seventh annual Education Celebration. Sponsored by MidAmerican Energy Co., Education Celebration is a time for kids to take a break from the traditional classroom and learn through interactive activities with the players. Player videos on the arena video board and a workbook that includes quizzes and word games will commemorate Black History Month, promote anti-bullying and educate children on the importance of energy efficiency. Tickets to the game can be purchased by calling 515-564-8550, online or stopping by the arena box office. The game is open to all fans. Tipoff is at 10:30 a.m.
