NASA technology? Yes, it can help
Did you know that a rocket scientist can help solve workplace challenges for small businesses? The Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program matches small- business owners with NASA technology and a consortium of private corporations. For example, a Pinellas Park glass artist benefited from SATOP's advice to reduce his electric bill by keeping heat inside his furnace. Applications for assistance are available at the Seminole Chamber office at 8400 113th St. N.
