At Imagination Station, "aha" moments are teachable moments!

Can you picture that "aha" moment? That moment when a child's face lights up as they get to ride a bike 18 feet above the ground, build a water rocket and launch it into the air for the first time, or set foot into the Gravity Room?

These are the memorable moments that spark a child's passion for a career. These are moments when a child sees herself as a problem solver and begins to understand how things work. 

How do you prepare a child for a bright future in a fast-changing world? One "aha" moment at a time.

When you make a gift to Imagination Station, you’re making sure these moments add up to a bright future for a child.

Richard Riley, former U.S. Secretary of Education, said, “We want to prepare students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using technologies that haven’t been invented, in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.” At Imagination Station, we’re preparing children to become innovators and problem solvers.
