Dream Big! Explore STEM!
Imagination Station's Girl Power!
March 14 - 20, 2021
What can a girl do with STEM (science, technology, engineering and math)? She could discover a new planet, create a new nail polish color, design a new car seat. She could develop a new vaccine or find a new species at the bottom of the ocean. A girl can do anything with STEM!
Imagination Station will once again inspire girls to become the next generation of engineers, doctors and researchers during Girl Power! - presented by Toledo Edison and FirstEnergy Foundation. This year, the annual program has expanded and will be delivered virtually and FREE.
