Lebanon County tech students make parts for Space Station

Students at vocational and technical schools relish the opportunity to get real-world experiences. Very few ever get the chance to contribute to out of this world projects, but that’s just what students at the Lebanon County Career and Technology Center (LCCTC) in Eric Tanger’s Industrial Machine Technology are doing.

They’re making parts for NASA and the International Space Station.

It’s part of a program that pairs high schools with NASA.

To tell us more about this unique partnership on Monday’s Smart Talk is Eric Tanger, Precision Machining Instructor at the Lebanon County Career and Technology Center.
