Event to share ideas about students' work as energy entrepreneurs

March 22, 2016

The IESE (Integrated Energy Solution for Entrepreneurs) team will hold an event for those interested in learning more about the IESE program and ways for students to become energy entrepreneurs. The event will take place 12:15-1:15 p.m. Thursday, March 31, in room 135 on the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus. The event is free and open to the entire campus.

The IESE program, led by Professor of Physics Tai-Yin Huang, provides a platform for interdisciplinary faculty and students to collaborate on finding innovative solutions to address real world problems in the areas of green energy and LED lighting applications. The IESE team is part of the new signature program of Invent Penn State, Lehigh Valley LaunchBox, which offers co-working space in downtown Allentown.

Several of Penn State Lehigh Valley’s faculty are collaborating with students and regional partners to bring to life their designs and ideas. Recently, students are working to partner with Chris LaBonge, president of Adtell, to advance research on fiber optics. IESE students are also working with different LED lighting applications and on a greenhouse project.

Food and drinks will be provided with support from the student activity fee. Students are encouraged to bring their friends and learn more about the IESE program. Faculty and staff are also invited to attend this event and hear what IESE and Lehigh Valley LaunchBox is doing for the energy community.
