Experiential Digital Global Engagement, or EDGE, connects Penn State Beaver classes with their counterparts around the world through the use of technology. Paired classes create a project, and the professors and students work together throughout the semester.
Penn State has 14 international partner institutions in various countries, including France, Morocco, Israel, and Khazakhstan. Recent projects have included developing an app to help farmers in Kazakhstan know when to plant crops and creating plans for food-delivery and money transfer services in Morocco.
