About iMAGINE Upstate

About Us

iMAGINE Upstate fueled by ScanSource is a STEAM program created to put STEM education and careers on stage in a big way!


Our mission is to create meaningful experiences that promote a culture of lifelong learning and career readiness with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM), innovation, and entrepreneurial activity in Upstate South Carolina.

The iMAGINE Upstate festival is our signature experience and will be held in downtown Greenville on April 7, 2018 from 11am - 5pm. We are focused on student preparedness and facilitate collaboration among industry partners, academic institutions, non-profit organizations and the community.

We are a proud program of South Carolina’s Coalition for Mathematics & Science (SCCMS) at Clemson University.
