Biology taught via video conference in Minnesota school

Some Minnesota students are learning about biology via live video conferences instead of costly in-person visits to see autopsies and surgeries. Instead, the high school students joined students from other states viewing an autopsy during one such "video field trip," which officials say help smaller, less wealthy school systems keep up with neighboring districts.

I hope we can do that too in my school, we have two science classrooms with the video conferencing technology capability and I'm excited to see us using the Tanberg Video Conferencing Systems this way.
