Mackinly Adams sits at laptop

Mackinly "Mack" Adams sits in the Penn State New Kensington theatre lobby with a laptop. Adams used the laptop to control a Beam telepresence robot so he could attend sessions of New Student Days (NSD) in areas not yet converted to LED lighting. The student, who has been diagnosed with a rare form of actinic prurigo, is severely affected by sunlight and UV rays.
