February TEACH Meeting

WCTV Field Trip Photos
We had such a wonderful time touring the WCTV Studios!

The children learned about all that goes on behind the scenes to create news broadcasts each day. We were able to see how green screens work, sit at the news desk and film a greeting to go on air, observe the reporters and anchors working in the news room, and view the control room.

We also learned about robotic cameras, teleprompters, and what it is like to be a news anchor from our wonderful tour guide, Shonda Knight. The children were able to ask questions, and to hear from a news anchor and control room operators about how they prepared for and what they enjoy about their careers.

You can see pictures from our WCTV Field Trip on the TEACH Facebook page here

Great field trips are one of the many benefits of TEACH membership. If would like to join TEACH and participate in our field trips and other exciting events, we welcome you to download and complete a TEACH Membership Application here.
