 Audiences may engage with guest presenters either physically live from the Wahoo Public School Performance-Learning Center at 2201 N. Locust or digitally live from their schools with video conferencing technology. Digitally live video conferencing technology means either via an IP-based video conference unit or via a web-based computer connection.

We deeply appreciate use of a VCT bridge system owned and operated by ESU 17, as well as the promotional support of the Nebraska Virtual Instruction Source and Distance Education Coordinator Beth Kabes." Subscribe to  NVIS Virtual Field Trip Offerings at http://nvis.esucc.org/VFTList.aspx
