Congressman Bill Johnson took a trip to Zane State College today to tour the most recently added "Idea Lab."

The “Idea Lab” features state-of-the-art equipment for inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their ideas into a reality.

The Muskingum County Business Incubator(MCBI), OUZ and Muskingum University partnered to help people achieve their dreams.

Congressman Johnson said that he was delighted to see these local organizations work together.

“That is collaboration at the local level,” said Johnson.  “I love to see communities like Zanesville here.  They’re not waiting for big Washington, D.C. to solve their problems.  They’re being creative, innovative, and stepping out on their own solving some of their own problems.”

Johnson said that the strength of the nation comes from the innovative spirit of the American people like here in Zanesville.

“This is all about creating opportunities and opportunities create jobs.  It’s very exciting to come here and see what they’re doing.”

Johnson stressed the importance of technology and how it’s expanding the field of opportunities, especially for those locally that can capitalize on these opportunities.
