During the past several years, remote and robotic telescopes have enabled huge increases in observing capabiltiies. We present the application of these technologies in undergraduate education at Pomona College. Our network of two 14" remotely operable telescopes, and a smaller 10" telescope enables us to perform remote observing during laboratory sessions. In addition we can remotely operate our 1-meter telescope at Wrightwood, and a variety of student and class research projects are possible with this network of telescopes. We present the research projects, and curriculum developed so far, and its role in undergraduate astronomy education.
