Thumbs up: To the Penn State seniors who participated in the Penn State College of Engineering’s Design Showcase this week at the Bryce Jordan Center. The emerging engineers already appear to be up to snuff in solving real-world problems.
Thumbs down: To another apparent case of texting while driving. This time the driver is suspected of running a red light and causing a crash that involved a school bus on South Atherton Street. C’mon folks, put your phones down and drive!
Thumbs up: To Noah Kaplan, a State College Area High School student who used class schedules and an algorithm to find the best locations for student lockers. Now the school is using his method and he wants to monetize the idea. Ka-ching!
