John Morreale


B.S., Materials Science & Engineering (in progress at Penn State University)

As Rule4’s Facilities/Office Coordinator, John Morreale focuses on helping keep the fox den stocked and organized, as well as managing special projects and planning weekly lunch events. His previous positions include an internship with Misty Robotics and coaching gymnastics at CATS Gymnastics.

John’s studies are focused on materials science, and some of his favorite subjects in this area include glass science, metallurgy, and ceramics. He loves the challenge of finding practical applications for these hands-on skills. As an example, John worked on a project to develop a new solution to the price of solar panels, where he found that applying a coating to existing solar panels increased their efficiency by up to 23%, expediting the investment payoff. In the future, he hopes to use his degree to work on Formula 1 racing cars.

In his free time, John is an avid disc golfer, playing nearly every day. He is also captain of the Penn State club gymnastics team.
