Students in Waterloo Region participated in an interactive learning event recently that demonstrated the potential of the Waterloo Region Education and Public Network (WREPNet), one of the largest fiber optic community information networks of its kind in the world.

A Virtual Duet, featuring a live performance by members of the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, was transmitted from Kitchener, ON in real-time to selected schools and public venues throughout the region via the network. An interactive discussion between the Symphony and the audiences followed the performance.

WREPNet was created by a partnership of public sector organizations in Waterloo Region and private sector technology partners.
