School Field Trips
Take STEM Learning Outside of the Classroom!
Field Trips are the best way to fully explore all that Imagination Station has to offer. Unfortunately, schools don’t often have the flexibility of time, equipment and/or consumables to facilitate hands-on experiments in the classroom. That’s where Imagination Station comes in.
Our merging of educational styles, formal and informal, helps to drive home the concepts that you deliver in the classroom. Plus, all of our educational programmings are aligned with state standards in both Ohio and Michigan - helping you meet grade-level requirements.
The best part is that students love to visit and they have so much fun they forget they're learning!
Imagination Station is your partner in education, and we want to support your classroom instruction with a field trip or workshop delivered to your classroom, science activities, science resources and more!
We continuously review our offerings and respond to the changing science standards for teachers - providing new experiences for your students and helping you deliver science concepts in a new way.

Add on a Think Tank Workshop!

Student Cost*: $5 per participant (Minimum of 15 students per session, maximum of 30.)
In accordance with COVID-19 guidelines, masks are required for all Think Tank Workshop participants.
