LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)—Children at Reo Elementary School were doing the Earthquake Rumble Wednesday when the MiSci SCIENCEPALOOZA came to their classroom.

Comerica Bank teamed up with the Michigan Science Center to bring the traveling science program to the school.

Students went through a number of activities, including the Earthquake Rumble and the Invisible Fire Extinguisher.

One program organizer says introducing kids to science at an early age can only improve their futures.

“It’s very important for the kids to learn about science because as most people know, science, technology, engineering and math are the way of the future when it comes to the workforce. And of course, when those kids get those great jobs they’re going to need to know what to do with all that money,” said Michael Cheatham, community reinvestment manager for Comerica Bank.

Students spent three hours taking part in the MiSci SCIENCEPALOOZA.
