Students in the News
Our students are go-getters, committed to improving themselves and the world around them. Learn about some of their research, study abroad, internships, and other activities that are supplementing their education and preparing them for life after graduation.
Katy Gerace, a doctoral student in Penn State's College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS), will be able to advance her research interests in materials science and engineering after receiving a 2019 Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation.
An interdisciplinary team of 17 Penn State students recently placed first overall in the 2019 Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition, a contest designed to challenge undergraduate students to create unique solutions to complex wind energy projects. This is Penn State's fourth victory in the competition in the last six years.
A team of Penn State faculty, students and local high schoolers took first place at the 2019 EnvironMentors National Science Fair in Washington, D.C. EnvironMentors is a program that pairs university faculty and undergraduates with underrepresented high schoolers who want to gain research experience before college.
Before studying abroad through the GREEN Program, Jacob Kaminski didn't have a clear vision of how he could address sustainability challenges around the world. But his study abroad trips to Iceland and Japan radically expanded his perspective.
Penn State, in partnership with Project Drawdown, will hold the first international conference on climate solutions, based on the 2017 New York Times best-seller "Drawdown, The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming."
Students, including two teams advised by Allen Kimel, associate teaching professor of materials science and engineering, displayed their capstone design projects at the College of Engineering's spring 2019 Capstone Design Project Showcase.
When Penn State student Ana Isabel de la Fuente Duran's fellowship led her to tackle materials science research problems at another university last summer, she stumbled upon an entirely different problem to solve.
