Excite. Inspire. Encourage

In this time when science and math education are more important than ever, schools are being forced to tighten budgets and cancel field trips. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to experience the wonder of science–it’s our goal to help as many students as possible! With that in mind, we asked corporations, foundations and individuals to step forward and help bridge the budgetary gap, and they have generously responded. 100% of Adopt-a-School funding is provided by corporations and foundations.  

The Adopt-a-School program offers qualifying schools access to Imagination Station to bring their students on a field trip.

To apply, fill out the application below and we will help as many students as we can!

Imagination Station is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.
