About Us

About the EdTech Network

The Penn State EdTech Network seeks and develops new ways to use artificial intelligence to create transformational solutions for higher education. We bring together students, faculty, staff, and industry to improve the student experience at Penn State, and in doing so, create unique opportunities for our student community to participate in the development of artificial intelligence and educational technology solutions. We also promote faculty research that pushes the boundaries of machine and human solutions, industry collaboration with subject matter experts, and the creation of new businesses.

We support the Invent Penn State initiative, which aims to drive job creation, economic development, and student career success by connecting researchers and innovators with the people who can help bring their discoveries to the marketplace.

"Penn State is developing a culture that encourages, nurtures, and rewards entrepreneurship, not just in STEM, but in the arts, health and human development, education, and more."

—Eric Barron, Penn State President
