A memorable impression: Science center lets kids open their minds

Forget first impressions. The fifth impression is apparently where it’s at for countless youth in Greater Lansing.

Play and learning are neatly wrapped in fun and discovery at Impression 5 Science Center, 200 Museum Drive in downtown Lansing. Nestled on the banks of the Grand River, the center is a place where youth can use their exploration experiences at the center to build their connection to science, said Micaela Balzer, director of innovation and learning.

“It’s a hands-on way to have a relationship with science,” Balzer said. “It actually allows you to touch science — not just read about it in a book. It’s a new way to have a relationship with science.”
