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.
