Environmental Science Poster presentation

Students from Environmental Science presented their ideas on how PSU-LV can become more environmentally sustainable on Nov. 29. The displays set up on campus consisted of cost-effective alternatives, such as the installation of solar panels, purchasing a compost for food waste, hosting classrooms outside and more. Each project included academic research on their retrospective topics citing the financial, social and environmental benefits to be considered. Karen Kackley-Dutt, assistant teaching professor of biology at Penn State Lehigh Valley, encouraged attendees to ask students about their project and to vote on their favorite one. The project with the most votes will possibly be considered for future implementation on campus.
