The end of the year is near and you're probably trying to decide which nonprofits and charities will receive your donation. You might be surprised to know that Imagination Station is a nonprofit organization that relies on donations to help spark a passion for the sciences through programs, field trips, permanent and temporary exhibitions and more. 

When you make your donation to a nonprofit science center like Imagination Station, you are saying yes to science education, yes to your community, and yes to making the world a better place to live!

If you're looking for more reasons why Imagination Station should receive your donation, check out these 10 reasons why science education matters:

  1. Science is all around us, all the time. Did you microwave popcorn recently? Science! 

  2. The fastest growing careers are in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. 

  3. More money! STEM workers command 26% higher wages than non-STEM workers. 

  4. Climate change. It's real. We need as many brains on this as possible. 

  5. Science education creates critical thinkers and problem solvers. Climate change solved!

  6. Science education makes students competitive on a global level. USA! USA! USA!

  7. Got smog? Most urban cities across the world do, and scientists are the key to helping all of us breathe easier. 

  8. Natural resources are growing scarce and we need innovative thinkers to uncover solutions. 

  9. Technology creates better lives for ourselves and others. 

  10. Knowledge is power. Our children, our grandchildren, and their grandchildren are depending on us to provide them the resources to solve looming problems. 


Help us be the change the world needs. Help us fill the gap in science education. Help us spark a passion for the sciences!  

Can you believe the impact we’re making?

The science center has now welcomed over 1.4 million visitors! Here’s a quick overview of whom we have served:

  • Since the Adopt-a-School program’s inception, 37,000 students have participated in or seen science concepts brought to life through hands-on, experiential learning.
  • Last year, more than 90,000 young children visited Imagination Station and participated in programs and exhibits designed especially for them through Little Scientist Workshops, a daily Science Story Time, Preschool Workshop on Wheels, Science Festivals, and other interactive experiences.
  • Last year, Imagination Station hosted 147 girls in third – eighth grades for Girl Power, a career day for girls with an interest in STEM to meet and be inspired by women in STEM fields. 

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.

Imagination Station has worked hard to become an educational resource and it has paid off! Check out some of awards and recognition we have received in the last couple of years! Learn More >>
