The Innovation & Curiosity center is a college laboratory located in the Life Science building on Wayne State's campus. This center is on temporary loan from the College of Nursing and is not only open to C2 Pipeline students and schools, but is available to middle schools and high schools throughout Metro Detroit, and the public. It enables students of all ages to explore, innovate, and gain an exceptional experience at a major research institution utilizing college facilities. This center is a great place for students to perform science experiments, advance their knowledge in S.T.E.M. and utilize new-age technology. 

The S.T.E.M.  lab space consists of large bench areas with sinks which are ideal for biology, chemistry, dissection, or other S.T.E.M. related activities. 


If you are a teacher looking for a unique field trip experience or are simply in need of rental laboratory space, the Innovation & Curiosity Center is perfect for you and your students. Customized packages are available that will meet your group's needs.

We offer a variety of packages to give high school and middle school teachers an opportunity to facilitate their own activities and experiments utilizing an authentic college laboratory. These package options have already opened many doors for schools in the Metro Detroit area that did not have access to a laboratory setting in their schools to facilitate science experiments for their students.
