“NASA Roadshow” visits campus
YSU President Randy J. Dunn, right, chats with Robert J. Shaw, deputy director of the Office of Technology Partnerships and Planning at the NASA Glenn Research Center. Shaw was at YSU earlier this month for the “NASA Roadshow,” where NASA representatives provided no-cost engineering consulting for four area companies facing technical and manufacturing challenges.
The featured luncheon speaker was Antonio Riley, administrator of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Region V, who is pictured in the background of the photo. The NASA Roadshow at YSU was the first event of its kind in Youngstown, and was presented by YSU; NASA; the federal Strong Cities, Strong Communities Initiative; MAGNET, a nonprofit organization that promotes manufacturing in the 18-county northeastern Ohio region; and MAGNET’s Partnership for Regional Innovation Services to Manufacturers (PRISM) program.
