As a teacher, I love to see young people wanting to learn, trying new things, takings risks and discovering how things work! They often remember and apply what they learned at the Imagination Station. The "hands on" activities increase their interest. :)

Only if you want food or a locker. The only other cost is for the simulator for non-members. Not sure if it is free for reciprocal membership or not.
