The C-SPAN Bus paid a visit to Cass Technical High School on September 6, 2013 to help kick-off the new school year.
The C-SPAN Bus is an interactive, multi-media learning center that brings C-SPAN’s coverage of public affairs to communities nationwide and teaches the public how to follow Washington Your Way. The Bus is 45 ft long, 8 ft wide and 13.5 ft tall.
Aboard the C-SPAN Bus, students learned about the following programming and resources via HD-TVs, touch screen computers, laptops, and mobile devices:
- C-SPAN’s in-depth public affairs event coverage
- C-SPAN’s web offerings, including over 200,000 hours of archived video going back to 1987 through C-SPAN’s vast Video Library and Congressional Chronicle
- The many ways to connect with C-SPAN including Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, YouTube, XM Radio, and mobile apps
- Interactive quizzes to test your knowledge about the political process and the key figures whom have shaped America
NEW this year! The C-SPAN Bus will be highlighting C-SPAN’s new series, “First Ladies: Influence and Image.” The series will feature the women who served in the role of First Lady over 44 administrations, examining their private lives and the public roles they played in the White House.
Students also learned about a documentary contest called Student Cam that has up to $100,000 in prizes.
