The Michigan Science Center is opening its new 8,000 square-foot prototype exhibit “Level Up” Wednesday with a traveling exhibit aimed to foster career ideas in children.

Sponsored by General Motors, the exhibit is meant to address the needs of a successful 21st-century career, said Terry Rhadigan, vice president of Corporate Giving at GM, in a press release.
