Lawrence Technological University will host its second annual Science & Technology Showcase of student talent for area employers Wednesday, April 4, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the A. Alfred Taubman Engineering, Architecture and Life Sciences Complex, 21000 W. 10 Mile Road, Southfield (see www.ltu.edu/map).
The event is being organized by the Oakland County Department of Economic Development and Community Affairs. Participating will be two of the department’s business networks – Medical Main Street for life science businesses, and Tech248 for technology-based businesses.
