Industrial engineering students Mike Frost and Sean Woodrow knew they wanted to improve the design of an existing product -- in this case a toothpaste tube squeezer -- when tasked with a class assignment to use reverse engineering and/or 3D printing to design and prototype a product.

“Who cares about water quality more than people who live near these streams? It seems natural to think about approaches where we ask them to volunteer.” Penn State researchers and local citizens team up to make Pa. #streams healthier. #sustainability http://bit.ly/1zSNFCK
Penn State researchers are developing new connections with volunteers, citizen scientists, who can collect stream samples from across the state and send them back Penn State for analysis. This will give researchers better baseline data on the conditions of the state's waterways, and better help scientists evaluate potential future environmental impacts.

Penn State Schreyer Scholar part of a team credited with co-discovrey of a never-before-seen #pulsar. The discovery was part of an effort that researched #NSF data. “This experience taught me that you do not have to be an 'Einstein' to be good at science,” said McGough, who is majoring in astronomy and astrophysics and physics. “What you have to be is focused, passionate and dedicated to your work.” http://bit.ly/1EtsFPI
Cecilia McGough, current Penn State Schreyer Honors College Scholar and sophomore in the Eberly College of Science, is credited with co-discovery of new pulsar after a summer National Science Foundation project gave a high school team access to the Green Bank Telescope. Further observations have revealed this pulsar has the widest orbit of any around a neutron star and is part of only a handful of double neutron star systems.
