Redeveloping the Holcomb Bridge Road Corridor

When the city was incorporated nearly eight years ago, one of the missions of the City Council was to seek opportunities to reinvigorate and redevelop the Holcomb Bridge Road corridor.

This important gateway to our city was once a thriving part of our community filled with busy restaurants, retail stores, businesses and new apartment complexes. But as the northward march of development continued, this area began to show its age. Read More

Curiosity Lab Intern Shares Experience
Paul Duke STEM HS student
Curiosity Lab has been privileged to work with two Paul Duke STEM High School students this academic year. They have each worked with one or more startups to learn and deploy valuable skills. Danielle Sophamisay is one of the interns (pictured) -- her story is below:
" My experience at the Curiosity Lab has been incredible. My internship with Insiten  has given me new insight into different areas of the business environment. I started with a programming boot camp where I was taught the basics of JavaScript and HTML. Then, I transitioned to the graphic design aspect of using Photoshop to make wallpapers and making a website aesthetically pleasing while still being user friendly. My favorite part would have to be the atmosphere at the Curiosity Lab. The wall art and decorations give it a fun and inviting feeling."
