BEAM robot from New Kensington and Greater Allegheny BBH program

Penelope Morrison, assistant professor of biobehavioral health at Penn State New Kensington, interacts with students at the Penn State Greater Allegheny campus via a Beam telepresence robot. The shared biobehavioral health program at the campuses acquired two robots thanks to a grant from Penn State's Teaching and Learning with Technology REACH initiative. Each campus has a robot which allows Morrison and fellow faculty member Kristal Tucker, assistant professor of biology at the Greater Allegheny campus, to "shorten the distance" between distance learning classes.
