Fueled by a lifelong love of #magazines, Lyndsay Green, who earned her Penn State #journalism degree in 2010, took her interest in #travel and created Beauty Atlas — a digital magazine that showcases how people from all corners of the globe view #beauty.

What are the styles? What kind of natural resources do some regions have that others do not? How do different cultures define “beautiful?”

Penn State Schreyer Honors College alumnus, Luke Brezovec’s dual love for #science and #art has lead him to taking #photographs all over the world.

Brexovec, who conducted #research at the University of Cambridge through a Schreyer Honors College International Research Grant in the fall of 2013, traveled to various countries including: #Belgium, #Italy and #Poland. Brexovec, who will be attending Stanford this fall for his doctorate in #neuroscience, hopes to publish a book of all his photos from his various travels.

“The aim of this project is to accelerate the development of the next generation of conjugated polymers for flexible electronics,” said Gomez. “By developing computational tools and examining molecular design rules, we will be able to better predict the electrical conductivity and mechanical properties of polymers to advance the development of new materials to create flexible electronic devices.”

The #research, led by Enrique Gomez, associate professor of chemical engineering at Penn State, will lay the foundation for predicting the mechanical and conductive properties of these #polymers from their chemical structure. #NSF #NationalScienceFoundation
