President Carter Connecting with Sugar Salem High School
Students from Sugar Salem High School celebrated the anniversary of the the landmark Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) by joining President Carter on a live interactive videoconference on Monday, December 2, 2013. President Carter answered questions from Sugar Salem High School and four other schools after speaking about ANILCA, a conservation land act doubling the size of the National Park System in 1980. This videoconference event was part of the Presidential Primary Sources Project, a collaborative program sponsored by the U.S. Presidential Libraries and Museums, the National Park Service, the Internet2 Initiative, and other stakeholders.
For more information and teacher resources visit the National Park Service website or to learn more about the Presidential Primary Source Project, visit the Internet2 website. The connection from the Idaho Education Network to Internet2 was provided by the Idaho Regional Optical Network (IRON).
