Did you know that Alaska is approximately 67 hours away from Kentucky by car? Well, it’s probably a bit farther than that after all the stops, but Owsley Co. High school doesn’t let that stop them from collaborating with experts in animal sciences and other fields. Using their new video conferencing station all of this and more is possible.
Owsley Co, while it is a beautiful place filled with its own culture, don’t expect to find experts studying penguins’ migration patterns there. The roads leading out of Owsley make the County seem like a journey and if you’ve ever seen the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou I think this gif sums it up quite nicely.
Don’t let the roads scare you off though, it’s a pleasant drive and the schools there have some amazing things going on. We haven’t even mentioned the drone competition they are participating in soon. So, be sure to stay tuned for more.
