Forker Laboratory, a Penn State Shenango landmark building built in 1972, required renovations to modernize the interior and match Penn State’s reputation for excellence. The renovated building houses space for Penn State Shenango’s biology, physiology and engineering courses. It is home to faculty offices, classrooms, laboratories for all STEM and physical therapy courses. The school’s largest classroom is also housed here.
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.
