Craving a deeper level of engagement? Sign-up for a Think Tank Workshop.
If you can't come to us, we will come to you through our Outreach Programs.
Certified LEGO® Professional Adam Reed Tucker has taken over half a million LEGO Bricks and created our latest exhibition. That’s 2,700 pounds of bricks that would stretch 11 miles end to end...this has to be Imagination Station’s biggest temporary exhibition yet!
Every Saturday & Sunday in April: Our Think Tank Workshops have been overrun with LEGO bricks! Let your imagination run free and solve each of our Spring Break themed challenges. As the challenges increase in difficulty, your LEGO creations will increase in ingenuity.
Thursday, April 27 - Discover what sinks, floats or flinks! Experiment with different items and even build your own bathtub toy to take home!
May 3, 2017: FULL - Students learn about the different states of matter while they watch experiments with liquid nitrogen.
Thursday, May 4 - Explore shadows and ultraviolet light while learning about the changes from day to night.
Every Saturday & Sunday in May: Light up the room when you sew LED lights into a wearable that you’ve designed. Learn about circuits as you work with electrically conductive thread. The fashions you create are sure to make you shine!
June 3 & 4: What makes a simple, complex or parallel circuit and how can you complete one using play-dough? Let us show you in this exciting workshop that allows students to explore the properties of circuits using unconventional materials.
June 7, 2017: FULL - Investigate the properties of matter. Students will experiment with mass and volume through substances like gold, wood, air and polystyrene.
June 10 & 11: Build off your newly developed circuitry skills and take them to a new level. Use new materials to create a critter that is entirely your own. Teach your critter to dance and doodle, slide and shake in a way that’s all your own. Finish the workshop by creating a badge that blinks and flashes thanks to your new soldering skills.
June 17 & 18: Begin this workshop by using special building blocks that contain inputs and outputs like motors, lights, batteries and buzzers and make them work together as part of a system you design. Then channel your inner seamstress to craft a conductive creation with LEDs and conductive thread that is sure to brighten any room.
June 24 & 25: In this final workshop, put your new skills to the test as you learn more about how different colors of light interact as you experiment with light and shadows. Complete the series by combining your knowledge of circuitry and creativity to create a greeting card that will truly shine.
July 8 & 9: Link everyday materials together and turn them into a creature that moves according to your specifications. Create a story, adjust the light and put on a show while you learn about the components of simple machines and how they set the world around us into motion.
July 15 & 16: Explore the engineering that goes into creating paths and obstacles. You will construct contraptions that meet specific design parameters. Then, create your own version of a pinball-like machine and decide what obstacles go where, what noises it should make and even what the rules are to win.
July 22 & 23: Put your observation skills to the test with a challenging activity that includes matching sounds to objects. Then, become a VIP builder for the Nerdy Derby. In a private build area, construct and engineer a car to race down the hills and valleys of a 40 foot track – the only rule... there are no rules. Attempt to build the fastest or slowest car for your chance to win a prize.
July 29 & 30: In this final workshop, become the true master of engineering by creating your very own robot. Begin with exploring the properties of movement using segmented joints to create a robot hand. Complete the series by programming a LEGO® robot to move through obstacles using drag and drop coding.
Tuesday – Saturday: 10am – 5pm
Sunday: Noon – 5pm
