The Mission of the Ohio Space Grant Consortium (OSGC) is to advance the Nation’s capability in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) leading to the continued development of a diverse workforce through NASA-related collaborations within Ohio’s network of scientists, researchers, engineers, and educators at Ohio colleges and universities, the Ohio Aerospace Institute, NASA Centers, the Air Force Research Laboratory, and industry that align with the National Space Grant Program goals and objectives and NASA’s education outcomes. A key component of this activity is to attract and retain students in STEM disciplines with emphasis on increasing participation by women and underrepresented groups.

When Team USA takes the ice for the skeleton event at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, the second week of February, the Americans will be using a sled designed by Dr. Grant Schaffner – the ProtoStar V5. “It’s tremendous,” said Schaffner, who is leaving Sunday, February 9 for Russia. “I always wanted to go to the Olympics, and the first time I went, it was to see my sled being used.”
