I wanted to say thank you Imagination Station and Wilson 4-H for hosting the FREE Energy Transformation Program! What a great opportunity for kids in Wilson to learn about energy, reducing their carbon foot print,and getting them to think about alternative fuels and new and innovative ways to save energy! A great hands-on program with a wonderful teacher! The kids thoroughly enjoyed participating!
Please continue to bring great programs like this to Wilson!
