The Impact of Menstrual Cup Distribution Programming on College Student Perpetuation of Period Stigma

This is a social sciences study to analyze the effect of menstrual cup introduction through the "CampusCup" free menstrual cup distribution program on the tendency of college students to perpetuate period stigma. A survey will be conducted across samples of students who participated in the CampusCup program, students who use menstrual cups independent of the CampusCup program, and students who have never used menstrual cups. The survey will address motivations behind menstrual cup usage and personal attitudes towards periods. The study seeks to investigate relationships between menstrual cup usage & CampusCup participation and impacts on community attitudes towards menstruation.

A Review of the Carbon Labeling Landscape and Consumer Attitudes Towards Comparison Carbon Labeling Designs

A carbon label displays the carbon footprint of the product (a number, e.g., 1.18 kg CO2) and helps consumers understand the impact of the product on the environment. The purpose of this study is to understand Penn State students’ preferred method of carbon labeling for a senior thesis. The study will be conducted via a survey that takes less than 5 minutes and requires no personal identifying information.

The participants will complete one survey that takes less than 5 minutes to complete. The survey can be taken on a personal device or a Penn State computer.

Effects of fasting on blood protein levels

Up to 50 older adults (age 60+ years) will participate in a two-visit CRC study with blood sampling (40 ml per visit) occurring before and after a breakfast meal. Specifically, there will be four (10 ml) blood draws during each of the visits, with each blood draw timed one hour apart (T1 to T4). The two visits (short- and long-fasting) will be randomly assigned and counterbalanced for the order in which they occur and will occur at least a week apart. During the short-fasting visit, participants will arrive fasting and be given breakfast after the second blood draw (T2). During the long-fasting visit, participants will arrive fasting and be given breakfast after the fourth blood draw (T4). Aside from blood draws, and vitals obtained at the start of each visit, participants will be seated comfortably in a chair in a small room by themselves. They will be checked upon periodically to ensure they are not falling asleep, they are comfortable, etc. They will also be given a small packet of written questionnaires to complete after T1 and after T3 (i.e., after the 1st and 3rd blood draws). Each visit will be between 3.5 and 4 hours.

There will be two in-person visits both will include four blood draws.

Examine Three Different Functional Analysis Methods Using Innovative Measurements to Identify Their Properties

This study compares three different functional analysis methods using the same measurements to find the better method. Each participant will be assigned one method to produce a diagram using the given method and one online survey after the in-person experiment. Each participant will be given detailed instructions and information regarding the method to ensure there are no knowledge gaps. 

For the experiment, participants will be assigned to a group of four people from different engineering subfields to evaluate a product using one of three functional analysis methods. Each group will be randomly assigned a product to evaluate and a functional analysis method to use. After the experiment, each participant will be asked to complete an online survey asking for their experiences and thoughts.

CO-CREATION OF DIGITAL TOOLKITS FOR ENHANCING THE RESILIENCE OF LOW-INCOME HOUSING IN SELECTED LOCATIONS IN FLORIDA AND PENNSYLVANIA

This study aims to assess engineering design solutions for sustainable, low-cost housing which can be able to withstand extreme heat and flooding disasters. The information will be used in digital toolkits and platforms to provide recommendations to residents in this area to learn the options they can use to make their housing resilient to extreme events and how they can access the information to guide them in the creation of resilient, sustainable and affordable houses in flood and extreme heat prone areas.

The study will interview the subject matter experts for a maximum of one hour to obtain their experiential input on engineering design recommendations in Flood and extreme heat-prone areas in Florida and Pennsylvania. The interview will be on zoom

Second Language Learners’ Language Development in Different Modes: Focusing on Complexity, Accuracy, and Fluency

The current study aims to investigate the development of English as a Second Language (ESL) learners' language skills over time, focusing on the interplay between the mode of production (i.e., speech versus written mode) and linguistic features related to complexity, accuracy, and fluency. To address this question, the study will collect spoken and written data from ESL learners in the U.S. at five measurement points throughout an academic year (FA23 to SP24), analyzing their production data using various complexity, accuracy, and fluency measures. The objective is to contribute to the existing body of second language (L2) development research by examining whether the interaction among time, production mode, and proficiency, as well as the varying relationships among the measures, significantly influence the observed outcomes.

Over the course of an academic year (FA23 to SP24), participants will attend five in-person visits, spaced at 7-week intervals. During each visit, they will be asked to write an essay for 20 minutes and deliver a 5-minute spoken monologue in response to prompts similar to those found in the TOEFL speaking section.

One Penn State : Connecting a Learning Community of Geographically Diverse Students

The community of remote learners is on the rise. With the trends of application and skill based knowledge, more and more people are migrating to the learn while you work paradigm. People value flexibility and comfort increasingly. Penn State is one of the few Universities propagating the cause of spreading knowledge via all modalities. The 33,302 students spread across its 19 commonwealth campuses are further a testimony to the prevalent trends. It is important that all these students receive an integrated and cohesive student experience. This also covers the need for the students to feel a sense of social belongingness. The work will focus on bringing together the Penn State community to achieve the true essence of it’s chant WeAre!

Communicating Queer Chinese Identities: A Qualitative Investigation of the Visibility and Intelligibility of Transnational Queer Women in the United States

In today’s climate of anti-Asian hate, we believe that it is important to uncover different aspects of what “being Chinese” could look like. To this end, we are looking for individuals who self-identify as ethnically Chinese, woman, and a member of the LGBTQIA+ community to participate in a one-time 90-minute online interview to learn about what they do in their regular, everyday life to try to show or tell others about who they are. As part of the study, we will ask interviewees to share some visual images (e.g., photos, drawings, etc.) that they own as a way of elaborating on the ways that they communicate their self-identity in everyday life.

The Biomechanics of Golf Performance

The purpose of this study is to determine what golf equipment and swing characteristics best predict playing ability in a population of golfers. Golfers will come to the laboratory and hit shots with various clubs while the movement of their body and the ball are tracked.

Participants will come to the Penn State Golf Teaching and Research Center and hit golf shots using their driver, 7 iron, and putter. A golf simulator will be used to track the ball trajectory. The movements of participant's body segments and the force they apply to the ground will be measured in three-dimensions as they swing. Participants will receive brief instruction from a Class-A PGA Professional upon completion.
