Bio

Dr. Scanlon is a Lecturer of Engineering at Penn State Berks.  Outside of the classroom, Dr. Scanlon focuses on outreach and student engagement.  She is very interested in the effect of innovative STEM practices and outreach on the performance, awareness and career choice of middle school and high school students. 
Dr. Scanlon is also the founder and director of Penn State ECHO (Engineers Collaborating for Humanitarian Outreach), which originated from a personal interest in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease combined with her strong belief in the need to educate engineering students about the human side of engineering and the importance of service to others. This endeavor, which involves outreach, service, applied research, and design, provides undergraduates the opportunity for student engagement while making a difference in the community.  Research interests include the mechanical properties of 3D printed materials and using additive manufacturing as a means for humanitarian outreach.
