Imagination Iowa is a PreK-12 STEM program that is focused on encouraging creativity, fostering entrepreneurship, and helping kids learn to code.

We have been running programs like CoderDojo Cedar Rapids, an Imagination Chapter, a Google CS First program, and a littleBits chapter for the community of Cedar Rapids.

Encouraging creativity through our connection with Imagination Foundation continues to provide kids in Iowa amazing opportunities to have fun and learn through creative play. Hosting an annual Global Cardboard Challenge continues to be one of the highlights of our year.
