Little Scoops

In a fun and exciting journey through time, participants bring the history of America's favorite frozen dessert to life!  Through props, costumes and interactive storytelling, participants learn about ordinary people who made extraordinary contributions to ice cream's rich and flavorful past.  Using inventor Nancy Johnson's technique, teams will put Scoopendorf's Batch Maker to the test when they conduct their own science experiments to see who can create the best tasting ice cream.  Will hand-made or batch-made be the victor?  Join us to find out!

Field Trips

Equipped with only a compass and map, teams will follow clues on a quest to solve the case of the sabotaged lab specimens.  The adventure begins with a virtual race around the world to correctly identify the countries of origin for nine frozen desserts.  Teams will compete to be the first to accurately complete their passport.  Applying what they've learned, competitors must then rely on their keen senses of sight, smell and taste to evaluate and correctly classify six tasty specimens.  This fun and challenging trip transports the flavors of the world directly to participants' taste buds.

School Field Trips/Group Visits

A school field trip or group visit to Imagi Nation is a one-of-a-kind, seamless combination of education and entertainment as children role-play over 40 different career choices.  Students acquire real life skills and experience first-hand how businesses work and how to be a good employee or leader, all while being introduced to the fundamentals of financial literacy.  Our school and group experiences are masterfully crafted, aligned with PA Academic Standards, and are hosted by a team of experienced, certified teachers.  Visits are ideal for schools, Boy and Girl Scouts, church groups, mom's clubs, sports teams, or just a fun day out!

What makes an Imagi Nation visit exceptionally different is the way our team of educators carefully weave social skills development into every activity.  In a world of technology where children spend the majority of their day behind a screen, an Imagi Nation experience allows them to interact in real time, in real world situations with others.  So whether your students are challenged with communication, decision making, problem solving, or conflict resolution skills, an Imagi Nation field trip or group visit incorporates them all.
