Students are welcomed to IMSA to help our curriculum specialists’ test and prototype new hands-on, minds-on STEM activities. Students attending this event will be invaluable science advisors in ensuring that the programs we create are all FUN, interesting, and overall kid-approved. Some activities for this event are purposely left more open-ended (loose)/purely inquiry-based in order to allow participants to play a key role in determining the final (ultimate) direction the inquiry will take.

These 90-minute programs are free to families but students need to be registered to attend. Parents you may wait for your child in our lobby area, or leave campus and come back to collect your child promptly at 5:30 pm.
