The International Women's Baseball Center (IWBC) invites the whole family to a morning of hands-on stations on the field that will connect baseball and sports to STEAM subjects -- Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math -- plus History and Nature and Sports, in a fun learning environment.

IWBC partners with AAUW Rockford Area Branch, Rockford University, Rock Valley College, Discovery Center, Midway Village Museum, Rockford Art Museum, Severson Dells Nature Center and the Rockford Park District.
