Penn State’s mission includes helping to improve the well-being and health of individuals and communities through teaching, research and service. Penn State Lehigh Valley (PSU-LV) faculty regularly present, serve on panels and share their research with people and institutions outside of Penn State.
Over the last few months, PSU-LV faculty’s off-campus engagement included:
Tracey Carbonetto, instructor in mechanical engineering:
- Carbonetto took students from her engineering design course to Cedar Beach park in Allentown to perform a safety and accessibility audit of the ADA city playground equipment for the Department of Recreation. Students identified safety enhancements and accessible equipment. Improvements were suggested that could make the playground better for children.
