WPMQ Highlights the Great American Solar Eclipse
WPMQ radio/TV students from both Charlestown High School and New Washington Middle/High School traveled to Hopkinsville, Kentucky for the Great American Solar Eclipse for one of the most incredible things they've ever witnessed. Not only did students view the eclipse, but they got some great field experience as young, new reporters and camera operators by interviewing people from all over the world. They truly had the complete eclipse experience...giant telescopes, scientists, team bonding, light fading into dark, crickets chirping, bats flying, and the absolute beauty of the "Great American Solar Eclipse." One student even remarked that it was like an out of body experience. Most agreed that it was the most incredible thing they'd ever witnessed. Here is a compilation of the footage shot from the event. Please keep in mind these students are a novice crew but learning publicly and bravely and willing to share it with you.
Spring Hill Students Build Satellites
Third through fifth grade classes at Spring Hill Elementary were introduced to a new game in PE class called Satellites. Students had to problem solve first by building two satellites using six Hula hoops for each satellite. They worked in small groups to get the hoops to stay in formation. After the groups built their satellites, they then attempted to knock down the other team's satellites using foam balls. Each satellite had a guard protecting it. Once knocked down, it could be rebuilt. This is great educational game that was enjoyed by all students!
