ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Students in St. Louis County got the opportunity to see science and sports combine during a recent field trip.

They also got a big surprise when the following the trip as well. 

Students from Parkway Middle School's "exploration" classes made the half hour trip to Busch Stadium Wednesday morning.

Crew members also used the visit as a chance to let the students know that there are exciting jobs in stadium operations.

And about that surprise that was mentioned, the students all received two tickets to The Winter Classic on January 2.

"Seeing the smiles on their faces is almost like seeing them on skates and skating for the first time," Dan Craig, NHL VP of Facilities and Operations said.

"I'm so excited. That's awesome. I was not expecting that,” Sam Opinsky, a 7th grader at Parkway Middle School, said. “A huge surprise."
