Otterbein University announced it is partnering with leading organizations from the private and public sectors in central Ohio to create a new space for hands-on integration of science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Approximately 200 people attended the announcement on Friday, Feb. 19 at the Science Center atrium.
The STEAM Innovation Center is the first of its kind in the country offering an entrepreneurial epicenter for creativity and collaboration across disciplines and industries. The new facility will be located at 60 Collegeview Road, on the west side of Otterbein’s campus. Engineering will start classes in the building this fall while business partner PolymerOhio will move into their new space. Ikove Capital Partners will move in during the second or third phase of building construction.
