The SMASH Nuclear Exhibit at Impression 5
Located in downtown Lansing Michigan, You’ll find the Impression 5 Science Museum. With over 29,000 square feet to explore, this is a kid friendly museum you’ll want to add to your list of things to see, including the new SMASH Nuclear Exhibit!
Think you won’t be amazed? This museum is not just for kids. Impression 5 is a place where multigenerational families can come together and share stories, ask questions and make meaningful memories.
If you think you have seen the museum and haven’t been there in a while, you need to come check it out again. They are constantly improving the museum, including the new Smash Exhibit which focuses on nuclear energy.
Smash: A Nuclear Adventure
In the Smash Exhibit, you can explore nuclear science in many ways. There are several on exhibits at Impression 5 that allow you to build atoms and discover how isotopes are made. These models were created to simulate the research that is happening at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University.
The Smash Exhibit is great for young kids, but what I found is that it is also great for older kids. They have science related material that is college level, but it still allow young kids to learn as well.
This was my favorite exhibit. There are two stations that allow you to release the balls and try to capture just certain colors. It was like a race track of balls going around and around.
