Imagination Station to host Girl Power! event March 11

Press Staff Writer

        Children dream BIG - dreams of space travel, building robots, designing video games, becoming life-saving doctors. Small experiences spark these passions - support, encouragement and inspiration make them a reality. This is especially true for girls and women who are excited about science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM).
        In keeping with its mission to create and support STEAM-strong girls, Imagination Station will host Girl Power! - presented by Comfort Line FiberFrame and Troy Electric, on Saturday, March 11.
        The eighth annual STEAM career day is designed to connect girls in grades 3-8 to women who are making a difference in their fields. Attendees will roll up their sleeves and participate in dozens of activities and have the opportunity to meet successful female role models who are challenging stereotypes in a wide variety of careers.
        “Girl Power! has so many moments of connection and inspiration,” said Lori Hauser, chief
executive officer, Imagination Station. “Many times, girls have a hard time ‘seeing’ themselves in these positions. This
event brings a diverse group of women under one roof to illustrate that these opportunities are attainable. Girl Power! will prove that anything is possible, regardless of the statistics.”
        Along with a panel discussion, attendees will be inspired by K. Renee Horton, Ph.D., who turned her lifelong love of science and NASA into a career.  Dr. Horton refers to herself as a “hearing impaired black physicist, mother of three – that’s who I am, that’s who I be, but that’s not everything.”
        In her day job, Dr. Horton serves as a NASA Space Launch System (SLS) Quality Engineer at Michoud Assembly Facility (MAF) in New Orleans. She is an advocate for diversity and inclusion STEAM and works diligently in the community for STEAM education and outreach.
        Girl Power! tickets are on sale now and include the keynote speaker, a variety of workshops, additional hands-on activities, a drawstring bag and admission to the science center.  
        Tickets can be purchased at
