Every Thursday afternoon, the Nebraska Innovation Studio machine shop lathes are circled by a group of veterans learning and honing their woodturning skills.
The hands-on lessons also double as therapy sessions.
Woodturning is a simple task, but requires concentration. That focus quiets thoughts the veterans may be struggling with, said Jim Young, a Vietnam War veteran and founder of the Veterans in Recovery program.
Taught by lecturer Carol Ochsner, “English for Science and Engineering” course offers international students a chance to improve their language skills with hands-on learning experiences across the UNL and Lincoln communities.

Chuck Hagel and Bob Kerrey openly admit that they didn’t always agree while serving as U.S. senators for Nebraska. Yet the two were able to set their differences aside to serve the interests of the people.
That kind of compromise is lacking in Washington today, they told an overflow crowd during the first Heuermann Lecture of the season Oct. 22 at Nebraska Innovation Campus. The free lecture was sponsored by the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
In a former life, the site of Nebraska Innovation Campus’ newest building was a copse of trees and vendor stalls near the eastern edge of the midway of State Fair Park.
A century later, the Rise Building near 21st Street and Transformation Drive is 80,000 square feet of bright and modern potential campus officials hope attract rising businesses to the up-and-coming research park.
Until Thursday, Jordan Lambrecht and Melissa Ewing had been strangers.
Now, Lambrecht is intimately familiar with Ewing’s life story, having spent two days working together at Nebraska Innovation Studio to artistically represent Ewing’s life and service in the United States military.
As Lambrecht sketched a rough draft, he explained how themes from Ewing’s story prompted his creative process.

The high-tech set of video laryngoscopes used by Lincoln Fire and Rescue to navigate a patient's vocal cords and other obstructions during intubation came with a set of low-tech carrying cases.
Although better than the denier fabric cases of the manual scopes, which are hospitable to bacteria, the new cases included holders built from paper pulp prone to disintegration after the instruments were disinfected.
There is an additional way to pay for metered street parking at NIC. Two pay stations (one located on 21st Street and one located on Transformation Drive) allow visitors to pay for metered parking using a credit card or coins at a physical pay station.
How does it work? Visitors park their vehicle and then go to a pay station. At the pay station, they enter their license plate number and purchase parking. The pay station uses license plate information to identify vehicles and know that a visitor has paid.
