New Impression 5 water exhibit will combine education and play

Jul 7, 2015

A new water exhibit at the Impression 5 Science Museum in Lansing is getting a huge financial boost from the Rotary Club of Lansing.


Lansing’s Impression 5 Science Center is planning a new $450,000 exhibit designed to make a big splash. It’s a two-story permanent “water park” that will combine play with education. The project has received a $250,000 commitment from the Rotary Club of Lansing to mark the club’s 100th anniversary, which is next year.

Impression 5 is a hands-on learning environment which opened in 1972. The center serves over 120,000 families and visitors each year, offering kids and families activities that encourage risk taking, problem solving, and team building.

Current State’s Peter Whorf caught up with Impression 5 director Eric Larsen at the center for an update.
