Idea Lab at Zane State College

What is the IDEA Lab?

About the Idea Lab at Zane State College

If you’ve always had a passion for creation but never had access to the equipment you need, this is your chance. Start a new hobby or improve upon an old one. Create items you can sell (or keep for yourself). Turn your concept into a prototype and pitch it to a company, or start a company yourself. The possibilities are endless.
