Fall Clubs

From August to December Imagine Staff members guided students through STEM based activities and self driven projects. Most clubs concluded with the STEM Showcase. The staff got to know many students at several schools in OPS and at their own organizations, from McMillian, Marrs, Morton, Lewis & Clark, Indian Hill, Jackson, and more. Take a look.

Robotics Competition 2016

Saturday December 3rd, 2016, Boys and Girls Club of the Midlands hosted the First Lego League Omaha Qualifier. The plan is after the 18 teams compete, seven teams would qualify and move onto the Regional qualifier in Ashland in February. Each team that arrived was excited to compete and nervous to present. There were several teams that had competed in past years and only 2 or 3 teams that had never competed before. Four teams did not even arrive to compete. The Imagine Science team, The Silverback Scientists arrived with some presentation practice under their belts. They had been at the STEM Showcase two weeks earlier and won the presentation competition. It was a fun, interesting, and a great learning experience for everyone involved. Way to go Silverback Scientists who won the Judge’s Award trophy due to the team’s fight, courtesy, and constant ‘never give up’ attitude.

Imagine Science STEM Showcase

On November 19th, 2016, I attended the first annual Imagine Science STEM Showcase at the UNO Fieldhouse. I had so much fun. There were ten other Imagine Science after-school clubs that also displayed and explained their projects for the judges. It was a so much fun to eat the treats with my friends from school, see each team’s t-shirts, present my project, participate in the Mannequin activity, and listen for Ms. Liz to call my name for a door prize ticket (which I won free movie tickets). In the end it was such an exciting day and it was cool to find out who the BIG winners of the projects were and what prizes they picked. They had so many cool choices! Even better, as we were headed to our buses we got an Imagine backpack full of stuff! I can’t wait for next year!

Imagine Science Summer Camps Rocked!

Our summer Imagine Science camps were FANTASTIC this year! From Mad Scientists, Simple Machines, to Yum, Fizz, Boom, and Aquatic Engineering!(just take a peek below) Students from all around Omaha learned about chemical reactions, engineering, levers, physics, and SLIME!

Thank you to all the organizations, staff, and students who made it such a successful summer! See you all next summer!

Past Imagine Science Omaha Events

Imagine Science Omaha was very busy in 2016. Imagine staffers worked hard instructing and offering various science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities from January to December. They were at various large and small venues meeting and interacting with so many wonderful and intelligent individuals. You may have seen them at Do Space, the Nebraska Science Fest (at Durham), Healthy Kids Day (at Stinson Park), the Ribbon cutting & clubs at Girls Inc, summer camps throughout the city and many Omaha schools and organizations last fall participating in after-school programming. They even hosted their first STEM Showcase at UNO on November 19th, 2016 and had a team participate in the First Lego League (Robotics) Omaha qualifier at Boys and Girls Club on December 3rd, 2016.
