Field Trips

Instead of spending the day at Imagination Station, this program allows us to bring teh science center to you and your students. Your program kicks off with a video detailing the science behind some of our favorite exhibits. Then, your class will connect with an Extreme Scientist for engaging demonstrations and rich science content, including a Q&A session. 

Each field trip topic is selected to address science standards for specific grade levels. 

As a bonus we provide curriculum for one extension activity you can do in your classroom later to reinforce the topics covered by our extreme scientists. 

 Cost: $125 per classroom

2020 Virtual Field Trips

Kindergarten - Weather 

Your little scientists will tune in to see a cloud formed right before their eyes. Our Extreme Scientist will inspire them by using liquid nitrogen to demonstrate how exciting weather can be. 

Grade 1 - Making Matter

Solids… liquids… gasses… plasmas! Matter makes up our entire universe. Understanding the different states of matter and how they change will give your students inspiration to pursue science even further. 

Grade 2 - Forces and Motion

Forces are acting on us all the time. From gravity to friction, our world would be very different if we didn’t understand these fundamental forces at play. Whether a student wants to be a rocket scientist or figure skater, it’s important to understand the science behind the way we move. 

Grade 3 - Energy 

From musicals to lightning strikes everything requires energy. This demonstration will showcase just how fundamental and exciting energy can be to study. You’ll be surprised at how engaged your students are in the topics of; heat, sound and electricity. 

Grade 4 - Fossils

Are your students fascinated by dinosaurs ...who isn’t? Let them explore Imagination Station’s collection of fossils to inspire them to study the organisms of the past, including Tyrannosaurus Rex bones and gigantic footprints. Your students won’t forget this demonstration. 

Grade 5 - Forces and Motion 

The world around us is full of motion, from gusts of winds to the blood moving through our bodies.  In order for something to move, it requires force.  Forces and motion are some of the most important things in our lives.  Explore the relationships between forces, mass and speed that influence the way we move.
