ScienSonic Laboratories is Newest Certified Partner
Written by: developer
The Space Foundation welcomes ScienSonic Laboratories as its newest Certified Imagination Partner. The Space Foundation grants Certified Imagination Product status through its Space CertificationTM program to products and services that increase interest in and excitement for space and inspire new generations to take an active interest in space.
“Whether we realize it or not, we are all influenced and motivated by music. Our own Space Foundation team has been enjoying ScienSonic creations, which influence and motivate in a very positive way,” said Space Foundation Director — Space Awareness Programs Kevin Cook.
“I feel that we’ve found the ideal partner in the Space Foundation,” said Scott Robinson, head of sonic research for ScienSonic Laboratories. “They do very important work, and I give them a lot of credit for putting a value on imagination and creativity, in addition to the hard science. After all, Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge.”
