Imaginology at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa is a three-day expo with family friendly exhibits and hands-on activities for all ages.  Although Imaginology is geared towards youths, anyone with a natural curiosity for S.T.E.A.M. ( science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) will enjoy the event, regardless of age.

Today marked the opening day of the expo and it was designated as a special “field-trip day” for local Orange County Schools.  Students from elementary school, middle school and high school filled the OC Fair & Event Center to learn, discover and explore all things related to S.T.E.A.M.

Art Classes at ImaginologyStudents packed the Hangar to see a magic show performed by Eric Buss.  With a mix of physical comedy, witty jokes, slight-of-hand tricks and other improvisations, Buss had guests in the Hangar laughing while simultaneously wondering ‘how did he do that?’
