Nano-link Center is a collaboration involving 11 educational institutions whose goal is to promote nanotechnology education at multiple grade levels by providing comprehensive resources for students and educators. These resources are supported by hands on educator workshops and on-line content and activity kits. They work with various industry partners to ensure their curricula help students gain skills, knowledge and abilities required to support the economic growth of companies involved in nanotechnology. They also support informal education by providing demonstrations and exhibits to civic organizations, high schools and museums.

The Center for Advanced Studies and Arts is a consortium school composed of seven sending districts in the area (Berkley, Clawson, Ferndale, Lamphere, Madison, Hazel Park and Oak Park) where high school students take advanced arts or academic courses each afternoon.
