As an agent of positive disruption within the academic setting, Science Gallery Lab Detroit will engage academics and students at Michigan State University with new approaches and means of collaboration, embedding multidisciplinarity and public engagement at all levels in the university system. Science Gallery Labs will be the ‘innovation engine’ of the Global Science Gallery Network, building on the groundbreaking work of Science Gallery and reinventing it in experimental, uncommon, and creative ways.
