Opening Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway was highlighted by a significant jump in speed in the on-track debut of superspeedway aero kits from Chevrolet and Honda. Twenty-one drivers surpassed last year’s fastest lap of Opening Day as drivers turned more than 1,800 laps in preparation for this month’s 99th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race. “It’s faster, for sure, no doubt about it. Speeds are going to be up,” 2014 Indianapolis 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay said. “The difficult part for teams and drivers is balancing the clouded read you get from a big tow and new tires versus getting a read on the new car.”

Penn State Harrisburg recognized the TE Connectivity Foundation this morning for its donation of four 3-D printers, valued at $25,000, to the college's engineering labs. The 3-D printers will help Penn State’s engineering programs to "improve knowledge base in additive manufacturing and prototyping," the college said in a news release. Additive manufacturing (3-D printing) uses a digital model to create a 3-D solid object. The additive process uses successive layers of material — metal, human tissue, plastic, food and more — to create various shapes. This technology will be used on campus for prototyping or manufacturing in various programs, the release said.

Last fall the Foundation, in partnership with Wilsonville high-tech company TE Connectivity, constructed two bike shelters in the hiker/biker camping area at Champoeg State Heritage Area, one of 31 designated hiker/biker camping areas in Oregon state park campgrounds. Through a generous grant from the TE Connectivity Foundation and the tremendous efforts of 35 motivated volunteers who participated in TE Connectivity’s Employee Work Day, we were able to complete two bike shelters — one designed to host a family or small camping group and a second to serve as a gathering place for cyclists seeking cover from rain and wind.
