Lindsey receives $160,000 NSF grant to research student reasoning in physics

Beth Lindsey, associate professor at Penn State Greater Allegheny, has received a National Science Foundation grant to fund research on student reasoning in physics.
Students in class interact with robot

Biobehavioral health program connects students and faculty through technology

Tammy, New Kensington’s robot, and Jarvis, Greater Allegheny’s robot, help students in biobehavioral health program at the two campuses interact and collaborate.
Kristal Tucker speaks with another faculty member with robot

Kristal Tucker, assistant professor of biology at Penn State Greater Allegheny, speaks with Penelope Morrison, assistant professor of biobehavioral health (BBH) at Penn State New Kensington, via a Beam telepresence robot. The faculty members were able to acquire two robots to be used for the shared BBH program thanks to a Penn State Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) REACH grant. The robots are being used in the classrooms to bridge the distance between campuses during distance learning classes.

April Andreozzi, sophomore biobehavioral health (BBH) student at Penn State New Kensington, communicates via a Beam telepresence robot and controls it through her laptop. The new robot enables her to interact with students in the shared program with Penn State Greater Allegheny. The BBH program received the robot through a Penn State Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) REACH grant, which is helping bridge the distance between the campuses during distance learning classes.

Sophomore biobehavioral health (BBH) student April Andreozzi, pictured left within the Beam robot, interacts with another BBH student at Penn State Greater Allegheny with the help of the new technology. Andreozzi controls the robot from the New Kensington campus through a laptop computer. The robot enables the shared baccalaureate program to bridge the distance between campuses and increase interactions for students and faculty members.

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.
