TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Kids learned about problem solving and invention on Saturday.

The Imagination Station welcomed the "Innovation Showcase."

Kids and families learned about innovations happening right here in Toledo from local businesses.

They could also win prizes for their own ideas.

"We're also giving kids an opportunity to come up with some of their own inventions today. Our tagline today is "see a need, fill a need," and we're encouraging them to come up with their own ideas to create some inventions that are going to potentially solve a problem," said Imagination Station Outreach Coordinator, Jesse Hawkins.

This was the first year for the event.
