To help fill the need for six million workers trained in nanotechnology and nanofabrication, the Penn State Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization's Nanotechnology Professional Development Partnership is offering free live stream nanotechnology workshops for educators. >>
Two surgical approaches equal in treating infection-caused hydrocephalus

Implanting a shunt or endoscopically reducing intracranial pressure and reducing fluid production are equally effective in treating infants with hydrocephalus caused by brain infections, according to an international team of researchers, but endoscopy may have fewer down-the-line complications.  >>
New desalination method offers low energy alternative to purify salty water 

Providing safer drinking water to those in need may be a little easier. According to Penn State researchers, a new desalination technique is able to remove salt from water using less energy than previous methods.  >>
Electrical Engineer pitches in after hurricane hits Puerto Rico

"Jim Breakall has been monumental in our recovery efforts," said Angel Vazquez. "He has been on the radio every day at 6 p.m. for a month relaying messages back and forth so he would write everything and post it out to the world. Without him we couldn't have done this. He helped in the effort in getting my voltage regulator, tracking numbers, and helping us get what we needed to get back up and running."  >>
3-D printed microfibers could provide structure for artificially grown body part

A team of Penn State engineers believe they have a way to create the structural framework for growing living tissue using an off-the-shelf 3-D printer. The researchers' report in a recent issue of the Journal of Advanced Healthcare Materials that their aim is to create a novel, low-cost and efficient method to fabricate high-resolution and repeatable 3-D polymer fiber patterns on nonconductive materials for tissue engineering with available hobbyist-grade 3-D printers.  >>
Unoia Beauty offers entrepreneurial experience for chemical engineering students

Janna Maranas, professor of chemical engineering, offers students a different type of chemical engineering laboratory experience: introducing cosmetic research as a winning formula is to combine academics with real-life experience. Maranas founded Unoia Beauty in 2017 to create a company where women engineers research, make, and sell long-lasting, color-saturated products that customers can have customized while they wait. >>
