Excellent program – went along with our standards for science. Thank you so much!

Thank you for providing this free Video Conference! Students were excited to participate and learn more about the park and sled dogs. It was a valuable and educational experience for these 3rd graders. I would recommend this distance learning program to others!

I loved every bit of it! The kids were so excited to Skype with someone from Alaska. I loved how it wasn’t just a lecture and that it was very interactive. My students really enjoyed being a part of this learning experience. Thanks so much for the opportunity.
