We're proud to report several recent achievements by our Student Broadcast Studio partner schools.
Congratulations to Colorado partner schools Rock Canyon High School and Regis Jesuit High School who took 1st and 3rd place Video Production awards at J-Day - an annual event hosted by the Colorado High School Press Association!
Also worth celebrating is the very first broadcast by new Student Broadcast Studio partner school Barack Obama School of Leadership and STEM in Chicago Heights, IL. At the end of the training sessions we provided, the group of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students were able to write, direct and produce the broadcast entirely on their own using professional broadcast tools like teleprompters and virtual sets. The students are off to a great start and are proud to share their learning experience (for example, they now know how to properly check volume levels)! We're confident we'll see these young journalists earning video production awards soon too! Enjoy watching their first video broadcast below.
We were blown away by this video from Barack Obama School of Leadership and STEM in Chicago Heights Illinois. It's one of best student-produced videos about the SmartLab we've ever seen. Congratulations to all the talented learners at Barack Obama and thanks for allowing us to share your video!
Congratulations to Churchill County Middle School and Churchill County High School in Fallon Nevada for being named SmartLab National Reference Sites! Regional Sales Manager Jeanne Timmons recently had the honor of presenting award plaques at each school. Shown here with Jeanne are Steve Heck, Sue Chambers, Lynn Strasdin and Chip Rutledge. We are very proud of our continued partnership with this outstanding and innovative school district.
