The school year is ending but plan ahead and book your fall field trip to see out two new exhibitions that have joined Imagination Station’s vast array of inspiring exhibits!
Eat Smart. Play Hard. Have Fun! The choice is yours!
Eat It Up! has been open now for just over a month. The Wheel of Fire, Heart Rate Rally and Lifestyle Camera exhibits have become increasingly popular as visitors explore the new space. Eat It Up!, a highly interactive nutrition and exercise focused exhibition tells the story of how the choices you make today affect your body. Download the Exhibit Guide 3-5.

FARM 101: Know It to Grow It
Last week we opened Grow U and introduced the masses to a clever cast of animatronic characters that lead visitors through an agriculture based game show, FARM 101: Know It to Grow It! We’ve added more than 500 new team members to the Imagination Station crew, too! They might be tiny, but their job collecting pollen and building honeycombs, is never ending. Come peer inside a honeybee hive and watch these amazing creatures at work. Download the Exhibit Guide 3-5. Download the Exhibit Guide 6-8.
