Students utilize equipment in the "Orion Lab."

UIS computer science professor and director of the new Orion Lab Joshua Smith sat down with Community Voices to explain its creation, its current status, and how it is designed to allow accessibility to those who may not have access to the tools to help make their dreams a reality.

Logan Bricker is a student at the University of Illinois Springfield studying journalism. He also assists the Community Voices team at NPR Illinois.
