Impression 5 Science Center announces new sponsorship with MSU Health Care

February 6, 2024

LANSING, Mich. – Impression 5 Science Center and MSU Health Care are excited to announce a multi-year sponsorship that will provide significant financial support for the mission of Impression 5. Throughout the sponsorship, Impression 5 and MSU Health Care will work together to increase access to educational programming, events, traveling exhibits, and more. The missions of Impression 5 Science Center and MSU Health Care will combine to educate and promote STEM education and careers to local youth around the region.

"Our sponsorship of the Impression 5 Science Center underscores our commitment to fostering a healthier future,” said Seth Ciabotti, MSU Health Care chief executive officer. “By investing in STEM education and promoting healthy habits from an early age, we aim to empower the next generation with the knowledge and skills they need to lead fulfilling lives. Together, we are sowing the seeds of curiosity, discovery, and wellness, nurturing a generation poised to make a positive impact on our collective future."

The involvement of MSU Health Care has already made an impact to the Science Center through their medical support of the 2023 Capital City River Run which saw over 1,000 athletes this fall. As this sponsorship grows, future connections to the Science Center are planned to develop. Funding will be used to secure a future health related traveling exhibit, create a health career focused event to encourage youth to connect and explore STEM careers, and further develop and promote the Museums for All scholarship program.

Today, the mission of Impression 5 is to encourage families to PLAY with science, CREATE new things and ideas using science, and to CHALLENGE their scientific understanding of the world. This mission is achieved through the creation of interactive exhibits and dynamic educational programming.

MSU Health Care is committed to providing health, hope, and healing to every doorstep in Michigan. Providers at MSU Health Care deliver personalized care experiences for each patient and cultivate a safe environment for all involved.
