Waukee Innovation & Learning Center

The Waukee Innovation and Learning Center (WILC) is a hub for creativity and innovation for Waukee Community School District students and surrounding businesses. Through a revolutionary collaboration, students, educators, and business partners unite in one building to create professional work. The WILC is also a community venue for conferences and events.

The building design is the first of its kind, combining several components to create a modern workplace: collaborative spaces, meeting rooms, accelerators, decompression zones, and industry-specific studios. All of the features of the building work perfectly alongside the programs housed in the building, which include Waukee APEX and the Waukee CSD Career Center, both of which help to provide more opportunities for students to grow their professional skills.

The WILC is more than just a building. It inspires new ideas and encourages natural connections between business partners, students, and educators.
