Mt. Olive Manufacturing Continues Support of Link Observatory STEM Programming

Steve Langley discusses the UR-10 Robots capabilities with Greg McCauley and Kurt Williams of Link Observatory Space Science Institute, while Grant and Dillon Langley operate the robot.

During the summer of 2015, Steve and Lisa Langley of Mt. Olive Manufacturing donated $10,000 to help establish “The Link Observatory Space Science Institute Fund for STEM Programs in Morgan County,” a fund at the Community Foundation of Morgan County. In part, this funding has allowed the Link Observatory Space Science Institute to begin a partnership with NASA. On Friday, December 4, 2015 7th graders at Paul Hadley Middle School in Mooresville, Indiana had the opportunity to interact with Trent Smith, Program Manager for the NASA VEGGIE program at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida through a virtual interactive classroom. Through the use of modern computer technology, Smith and NASA educator Rachel Power interacted directly with 35 students – but, this is just the beginning.
