Wayne State University opened the 100,000-sf STEM Innovation Learning Center in Detroit in October of 2020. Designed as a campus hub for project-based learning and discovery, the interdisciplinary facility features flexible classrooms, wet and dry teaching labs, maker and hacker spaces, a 3D printing lab, and a student commons. Small groups can meet and interact in collaboration zones with integrated whiteboards and projection screens. The technology-rich building offers a variety of meeting and conference venues, as well as a co-working lab for the creation of K-12 educational programs. The project was made possible by $14.75 million in funding from the state of Michigan, accompanied by an equivalent investment by the university from bond proceeds and philanthropic contributions.
