In 2018, SC4 announced an official partnership with the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum on the college’s 10,000-square-foot Experience Center, which offers interactive exhibits on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (known as STEAM programming).

Located in SC4’s Clara E. Mackenzie Building, the Experience Center houses a hands-on center and the Dr. Bassam H. Nasr Natural Science Museum. The museum has the largest collection of fossil artifacts in the Michigan Thumb region.
