IMAG center offering online educational programs

By Staff | Mar 24, 2020

While the kids are home and the IMAG History & Science Center is closed, the facility is providing “mailto:IMAG@HOME”>IMAG@HOME, for online educational programming, instruction, and entertainment.

Focused on STEM education (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and local history education, IMAG@HOME is open online and free to students, parents, and kids of all ages with a broad range of programs that entertain and nurture intellectual curiosity and a desire to learn.

“Think of “mailto:IMAG@HOME”>IMAG@HOME as your “daily dose of history and science” in a new, fun digital way,” officials said.

The center is temporarily closed in response to the need to limit the spread of coronavirus, COVID-19. The IMAG has suspended its regular programs, events, on-site camps, and other activities until further notice based on CDC recommendations and the most current information from public health officials.

This is a way to continue to provide some services, a release form the center states.

“Presented on Facebook at: IMAGHistoryScienceCenter, “mailto:IMAG@HOME”>IMAG@HOME is receiving wide acclaim and appreciation for programs like STEM @ Home segments, Meet the Keeper live animal encounters, Curator’s Corner history and cultural presentations, Don’t Try This at Home programs, and Science on a Sphere shows,” the release states.

“With IMAG@HOME, moms, dads, and kids have engaging, exciting programs that are not only educational but also fun; programs that include do-it-yourself activities; live streams and pre-recorded shows; live interactive shows, experiments, and demonstrations; and other fun things to do with kids at home.
