Beaver students’ engine project remains on display at Ford Museum

An engine created by Penn State Beaver engineering students that’s been on display since last year at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit has proven so popular that museum officials requested it remain on loan through the fall to accommodate area schools during field trip season.

The project, which was featured last week on the Penn State home page, was part of a class taught by James A. Hendrickson, Beaver campus instructor in engineering. For a complete update on the project’s history, visit
