No Where Else

The Newark Air Force Base used to do open houses for the community. It was a normal year that saw 5,000 people cycle through the hallways of the massive Building 4 at the base to learn what happened there every day.

The United Way parade was another place where the Newark AFB had a big presence. Among the most elaborate floats every year were always the base's entry.

That was the Air Force's way of reaching out to the community and letting people know they existed as a future place for kids who worked hard and excelled at science, technology, engineering, and math.

Now, it's harder to reach a large community audience, but it is still just as necessary.

That's why I'm encouraging folks to mark their calendar for Sunday, February 21, 2010 from Noon to 5 p.m. for Aerospace Center Industry Day at The Works.

No where else in 2010 will one have a chance to see Boeing, Bionetics, Kaiser, and the Port Authority showing what goes on at the Central Ohio Aerospace & Technology Center every day in a fun environment like this.

Among the live demonstrations, Kaiser Aluminum will have a working model of an extrusion press and Boeing will show off 3D software in use in its Virtual Customer Integration Lab.
