THE HBA OF GREATER LANSING TAKES MULTI-FACETED APPROACH (START YOUNG & KEEP IT COOL)

To reach the younger ages, Lansing partners with Impression 5 Science Center for a Design & Build Day each year. This one day event gives kids ages 4-12 a chance to experience skilled trades through hands on activities. Kids are able to connect electrical circuits, help paint a mural, create and build with wood, shingle and tear off a roof, and so much more. They typically have 11 stations with members showing and helping the kids learn about the trades. This one day event brings in nearly 1,200 families.
