Excite. Inspire. Encourage

In this time when science and math education are more important than ever, schools are being forced to tighten budgets and cancel field trips. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to experience the wonder of science, and it’s our goal to help as many students as possible! With that in mind, we asked corporations, foundations and individuals to step forward and help bridge the budgetary gap, and they have generously responded. 100% of Adopt-a-School funding is provided by corporations and foundations.  

The Adopt-a-School program offers qualifying schools access to Imagination Station to bring their students on a field trip.

To apply, fill out the application below and we will help as many students as we can!

-    Incomplete applications will not be considered.
-    Applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis. All submissions will be evaluated on the last day of
the month. Teachers will be notified of a decision the first week of the next month.
-    Applications will be accepted online only.
-    Only one Adopt-a-School funded visit is permitted per student per school year. Please note that one teacher can apply for multiple classes.

Imagination Station is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.
