Penn State Harrisburg students' stormwater study aims to reduce local flooding

Nearly five inches of rain fell on Middletown Borough on July 23, 2017, most of it within one hour. The amount of water was simply more than the borough's stormwater system could handle. Flooding occurred in several locations in the borough and the entrance to the Penn State Harrisburg campus from Route 230 was also under water. Senior engineering students at the college think they can help if it happens again.

Passion for chemistry education has guided Eberlein’s volunteer efforts

About 14,000 top high school chemistry students participate in the local level of the Chemistry Olympiad every year. Of those, 900 advance to the national level test. Twenty are selected to spend two rigorous weeks at a study camp in Colorado Springs, Colorado. And four of those top students are chosen to compete internationally. In 2006, one of them was Mike Blaisse, and he credits Penn State Harrisburg Associate Professor of Chemistry Tom Eberlein with helping him get there.
