Take Learning to Another Level!

Imagination Station Think Tank workshops give students a way to explore specific content that may be difficult to teach in the classroom.  Our 45-minute sessions offer a structured, hands-on curriculum that will open minds and encourage learning during your field trip.  And best of all, they're FUN!

Dissect a cow's eye, create a light-up badge and get hands-on with the food web.  There's a science-stuffed topic for everyone!

Think Tank topics:

Electrodough

Grades 3-5

Flour and water aren't just for baking cakes. Learn about electrical circuits with play dough. Your students are the electrician and the inventor. Playdough is an approachable way to teach even the youngest learners about circuits by creating dough models that light up!

Eye Opener

Grades 6-8

Take your students' vision to a new level by exploring the eye of a cow! Through the technique of dissection, they'll examine the wonders of the cow's interior eye. Walk away with an understanding of the difference between vitreous humor and aqueous humor ... and a new perspective on how we see the world around us.

Jitter Critters

Grades 3-5 and 6-8 

Design a creature then learn how to use a motor to get your creation moving. Your students will teach their critter to dance and doodle, slide and shake in a way that's all their own as they learn about electronics, engineering and design.

Marble Machines

Grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8

Can you speed it up? Can you slow it down? Can you change its direction? Using everyday materials, students will engineer their own pathways for marbles and try to successfully meet our design parameters as they get hands-on with the engineering design process.

Blinky Badges (soldering)

Grades  6-8

In this hands-on workshop, your students will learn the skill of soldering. Using batteries, PCB board and LEDs, students will create their very own light-up badge to wear proudly, demonstrating their newly learned skill.

Wise Up

Grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8

Students will have a hoot as they learn about owls and their environment. This workshop gets hands-on with the food web. Identify bones and collect data to help researchers learn more about owl habitats across the country. Your class can become honorary citizen scientists!
