Imagine Science Omahais one of three ‘Imagine Science’ communities selected for a 3-year national outreach pilot program. The Imagine Science Omaha community is made up of The YMCA of Greater Omaha, Girls Inc. of Omaha, UNL Extension 4-H, and Boys & Girls Club of the Midlands. These four organizations are collaborating to bring engaging hands-on activities for 9 to 14 year-old youth in North and South Omaha. These organizations are working together to expose underserved youth in various science, engineering, technology, and math activities (STEM). Imagine Science is hoping to spark a life-long STEM interest that will hopefully continue on through their education and/or onto a career.
