AgrAbility for Pennsylvanians participated in the Penn State senior engineering design project kick-off.  As part of the EPICS project (Engineering Projects in Community Service), there is no cost to AgrAbility and students learn about assistive technology for Ag producers. AgrAbility staff proposed a project for an engineering team to address the problem that some producers have in accessing an upright silo, and numerous students chose that project.  A team was identified and will be working on the problem throughout the semester.  Their final project will be presented in the end-of-semester showcase.
