What an experience we all had today. We talked to Mark Wood, explorer, who is climbing to the top of the world. Mark spoke to us today from around Mt. Everest and told us about his journey so far. He plans to make it to the summit of Mt. Everest, 8, 848 meters, in another month. So far, he said he’s doing well, feels healthy and is exploring his passion: exploration.
Students asked him questions about his passion, the challenges so far, the gear he’s using. He even shook Kai’s hand–virtually. He also showed us the YIS logo and discussed how he will bring it to the top of the world.
Four reporters and Skype’s publicity person were here to record the event, so we’re looking forward to seeing the news and magazine articles about the conversation.
The connection was crystal clear, and students communicated amazingly. Thanks Mark!
