Today was PSU's mining engineering open house day. I went up and got their talk about the program. Also got to take a tour of their " vent lab". They have a simulated "mine tunnel" under the building ( 10 feet down) and a mine fan on top. They turn the fan on and they can test how the fan works and how to use sensors to moniter airflow. It was very cool and i got information on what high school classes i need to take to do mining engineering.
