Why ECHO?

Our videoconferencing programs allow you and your
students to participate in highly interactive and fun learning in real time. We
have taken the Next Generation Science Standards and have created programs that
are informative and entertaining. No special hardware is required to bring a
virtual visit to your classroom. A connection can be done with a computer,
webcam, projector and high speed internet. All you need to do is click a link
