Penn State Behrend alumnus Bill Eberlein collects ancient Megalodon teeth while scuba diving in Georgia and South Carolina. "The Megalodon wasn't just a shark," he said, "but a dinosaur shark. It was thought to be one of the largest and most powerful predators in the sea."
Harvard University professor Avi Loeb discussed the search for alien life during a Speaker Series program at Penn State Behrend. "It is likely that we have not yet encountered extraterrestrial life because we are not significant enough for them to want or need to talk to us," he said. "We are like ants to them, maybe, and they are looking for something else."
Innovators often think big when solving problems and creating solutions. A number of Penn State Behrend students recently started to think really big as they used the college's Innovation Commons to design and built a large-format 3D printer from scratch.
