Lafayette Imagination Station science center opens Saturday

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — After being closed for over two years, the Imagination Station, a Lafayette-based children’s science center, will finally be opening its doors again to the public Saturday, Aug. 6.

“Imagination Station is a science center using the ideas of STEAM: science, technology, engineering, arts & humanities and mathematics, to teach children through informal education,” said Matt Bishop, the facilities manager for Imagination Station in an interview back in April.

“So basically, using exhibits to teach them different ideas within that area and help them grow their imagination and help them actually see other paths and careers.”

Initially closed in March of 2020 due to the pandemic, workers have spent the past two years renovating the inside of their buildings and completing some much-needed repairs.

Although they initially had plans to reopen earlier, leadership decided to wait until they felt they could provide a safe and healthy environment for children to play and explore the wonders of science.
