Anthropological Research in Science Education (ARISE) at Penn State is a new summer institute in integrated anthropological sciences for historically underrepresented and underserved undergraduate students from across all Penn State campuses.
Philanthropy has been the driving force in the creation, sustainment and growth of The Arboretum at Penn State, not only in relation to its size but also its program offerings. A new fund established in honor of Dr. Kim Steiner, recently retired founding director of the Arboretum, is the latest example of how philanthropy continues to positively impact the gardens.
Noninvasive glucose monitoring devices are not currently commercially available in the United States, so people with diabetes must collect blood samples or use sensors embedded under the skin to measure their blood sugar levels. Now, with a new wearable device created by Penn State researchers, less intrusive glucose monitoring could become the norm.
Pennsylvania would be the first major fossil fuel producer to join RGGI, and it poses a crucial test of how the program might affect energy prices as the state seeks to cut emissions, experts say.
A new study found that 85% of the world's population and 80% of the land are already impacted by human-caused climate change. Here & Now's Tonya Mosley talks with Richard Alley, a climate scientist at Penn State University.
Using computing power to create a better, more sustainable future will be the topic at the first Center for Artificial Intelligence Foundations and Scientific Applications distinguished seminar on Oct. 18. Carla Gomes, the director of the Institute for Computational Sustainability at Cornell University, will present a lecture on artificial intelligence and sustainability.
A new generation of electronics and optoelectronics may soon be possible by controlling twist angles in a particular type of bilayer 2D material used in these devices, strengthening the intrinsic electric charge that exists between the two layers, according to researchers from Penn State, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Rutgers University.
The agency knows it needs to adapt to climate-driven events that will increasingly threaten coastal launch sites and other key space infrastructure.
A grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Program Office is allowing a Penn State-led research team to measure the rapid changes in greenhouse gas emissions that resulted from cities implementing stay-at-home measures to curb the transmission of COVID-19.
A new consortium is working to examine the transformation of energy systems through holistic, unified processes that consider the whole energy portfolio versus addressing individual problems.
Tomatoes, peppers, beans and greens — you’ll find them all at Penn State’s newest pocket garden. But aside from aside from adding a little color to campus, the garden looks to tackle the issue of food insecurity at University Park.
Rural Alaska has a bridge problem as permafrost thaws and crossing river ice gets riskier with climate change
Alaska is warming faster than any other U.S. state, and that’s causing problems, a team of bridge engineers and social scientists explains. The infrastructure bill in Congress would offer some help.
