Forker Lab houses Penn State Shenango’s largest classroom—The Forum.
The modernized features and lab renovations cultivate a space for learning, excellence, and enhanced engagement within the facility and campus community. In addition to new state-of-the-art learning tools for the biology, chemistry, and engineering labs, faculty offices were moved into department-based clusters, an undergraduate research laboratory was added, and a new student lounge and study area was created.
In the anatomy and physiology laboratory, life-size human Syndavers, human bone collections, and Bluetooth-capable physiology electrocardiogram equipment are available for use during instruction.
The renovated chemistry labs, including a new organic chemistry classroom, allow for interactive learning and problem-solving.
Students have access to Penn State Shenango's $1 million scanning electron microscope, 3D printers, and a 3D scanner to build learning models in a designated space.
Forker Lab is at the heart of our campus, and this renovation will upgrade the building to match the high level that our faculty are already teaching at.
