Assalamu-alaikum readers and IYGers,

Earlier this morning, our young men put on their explorer hats on and went down to visit a two-story brick building on 4th Street in Lafayette. What was so unique about this building you may be wondering? Well it contained the Imagination Station! Inside our youth had the opportunity to learn how to make green slime, observe Ferrofluid move, reflect lasers off of mirrors into a tiny chamber, try on a firefighter’s suit, build a GIANT arch, and construct an amazing domino display (see the two videos in the posts below for proof). For a visual tour of our trip to the station of imagination, please check out the pictures below:
