RobotWorx CEO Keith Wanner is a firm supporter of his alma mater The Ohio State University (OSU). He is also an enthusiastic advocate of science education. A new building project on the OSU Marion campus offered the perfect opportunity to promote both.
Wanner recently presented OSU at Marion with a $50,000 donation to be used towards the construction of a new science building. Ground breaking for OSU Marion's science center is tentatively scheduled for 2012. The building will include laboratories for a variety of sciences such as zoology, botany, physics, and others. It will utilize green building technology and be connected with the existing Larry Yoder Prairie Nature Center.
David Claborn, Director of Development and Community Relations for The Ohio State University at Marion said the school is very thankful for the generous donation. Wanner's connections to OSU and vision for RobotWorx are highlighted in the Winter 2011 Traditions Newsletter.
