COAL TOWNSHIP — Pennsylvania STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Ambassador Ann (Polites) Czeponis, a faculty member at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School, has completed the seven-week Penn State University CSATS (Center for Science and the Schools) Research Experiences for Teachers program.

Through a competitive application process, Czeponis was among 11 educators from across Pennsylvania who were virtually embedded in Penn State University (PSU) research labs. During the seven-week, full-time online research experience, which started June 15 and concluded Friday with a symposium, teachers worked alongside a faculty member to design sustainable building systems that promote environmental health and energy efficiency for existing structures.
