[Fort Myers, FL – March 19, 2020] In addition to our schools, attractions, some businesses, and other organizations in Southwest Florida, the IMAG History & Science Center is also temporarily closed in response to the coronavirus. The good news, however, is that IMAG@HOME is open and free online to students, parents, and kids of all ages.
The IMAG announces the introduction of IMAG@HOME online educational programming, instruction, and entertainment. As leaders in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and local history education, the IMAG is bringing the history and science center into the homes of many with a daily schedule of programs that entertain and nurture our intellectual curiosity and desire to learn.
