England has "Rhodes Scholars," who get to study at Oxford. It's a chance for "intellectual contemplation and personal development." Here in Pennsylvania, we have ROAD Scholars. Road Scholars are new members of the Penn State faculty. They get on a bus, for a 3-day tour of our great Commonwealth. It's a chance for, well . . . intellectual contemplation and personal development! This year's Tour was May 8th through 10th. New professor Scott McDonald, a professor of science education on the Penn State University Park campus, was on the bus, and he sent us this audio postcard.
