Penn State Calorimeter Survey

Posted: March 23, 2017

CED students create survey in collaboration with Pasto Ag Museum to determine community value of the Penn State Calorimeter

In collaboration with Penn State’s Pasto Agricultural Museum, undergraduate students in the Community, Environment and Development capstone course are conducting a study to determine the community value of the Penn State Calorimeter.  During the 1900's, this Calorimeter performed groundbreaking research, as it was one of the first of its kind in this country.  It helped farmers understand precisely how their animals were metabolizing their feed, and was influential in many fields of study, including dairy and human nutrition.  In order to understand who cares, and why, we invite you to participate in this survey: surveymonkey.com/r/psu_calorimeter .  Please share this survey with your colleagues and friends so you can help us reach the greater community!  We appreciate your participation, as this study will help to determine how the community values this historic building and its legacy, and how it can meet the needs in the future.

Please complete the attached survey by Friday, 4/7.  Thank you in advance for your participation!
