Professor awarded two NSF grants for engineering education research

MALVERN, Pa. — Kathryn Jablokow, associate professor, mechanical engineering and engineering design at Penn State Great Valley, has been appointed the principal investigator for two grants recently awarded by the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Engineering Directorate through the Engineering Education Program. The grants are focused on different aspects of the engineering learning experience in support of the National Science Foundation’s strategic goals for educating the future engineering workforce. “These projects build on my previous research to construct more detailed models of how engineering creativity operates and how it can be enhanced through a better understanding of individual differences,” said Jablokow.
