TOLEDO, Ohio — Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its large-scale construction project, Imagination Station will continue to provide STEM education virtually.

The science center says it plans to reopen its door, along with the new KeyBank Discovery Theater in September. 

In addition to the Imagination Station's virtual summer camps, the science center will provide various learning opportunities through regular social media live streams found on its website. 

“While Governor DeWine announced that museums may reopen on June 10, our conversation has been around how we can best provide a positive experience for our guests,” said Lori Hauser, executive director of Imagination Station. “We considered that our facility is an active construction site, combined with the impacts of COVID-19. This led us to the conclusion that it’s in the best interest of our guests to provide STEM education all throughout the community and virtually this summer, until our facility can be safely accessible in September.”

Imagination Station is working with the Lucas County Health Department and infectious disease specialists from ProMedica to ensure all appropriate cleaning and safety measures are in place prior to the science center’s reopening in September.
