If you are interested in joining a current project, starting a new project, or having an ASES student (solar expert) join your team to focus on solar with respect to your project, please contact us.
Our largest current project is the construction of a solar
picnic table where students, faculty, staff, and visitors will
be able to charge devices while working or relaxing on campus.
The Penn State Student Chapter of ASES has had members involved
with the following projects.
This Year's Conference
The Penn State Chapter of ASES attends a conference each
