UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- From building the better soccer net to designing a more fuel-efficient vehicle, Penn State engineering students displayed their innovation and design proficiency at the 2011 Engineering Design Showcase on Dec. 8 at the HUB-Robeson Center on the University Park campus. The event was hosted by Penn State's College of Engineering and organized by the Learning Factory, a University-industry partnership program that provides hands-on educational experience to future engineers.

During the showcase, final projects were judged by a panel of industry experts with prizes awarded to the groups with the best design applications and best displays. This year's event featured 76 student-designed and industry-sponsored projects that combine classroom learning with real-world technical demands and expectations.
