While we seem to have been posting a bunch of space-related stories lately, this one hits a lot closer to home for us – quite literally. OWC has been a big sponsor of the Challenger Learning Center here in Woodstock, IL, over the years and we’ll occasionally give a shout-out here when they’re doing something neat.
