We Are Your Science Center

Imagination Station has been a proud part of the fabric of Toledo and Lucas County since 2009. Our Team takes its responsibility to the community seriously and has used support from levy funds to turn
the science center into a vibrant educational and cultural resource for Lucas County.

The last year and a half, we shifted all of our outreach and programming opportunities to ensure that we were meeting the needs of students, teachers, members and the community at large - whatever that looked like for them.

We look forward to continuing to be the area's resource for exciting and meaningful STEM experiences.
