High school students from City Academy’s science video program visited SPNN for a tour of the Access studio on February 27th, 2014, led by the Access and Youth Departments. The students are currently working on a video project that promotes learning science through video, so the personalized, hands-on experience with video production in the studio helped sharpen their skills for an upcoming video project. Students got a taste of what it takes to produce and host a TV show in front of a camera. The students rotated as camera operators, directing and switching in the control room, working the teleprompter and hosting the show.

SPNN Youth Intern Program 2014

The SPNN Summer Youth Intern Program is an intensive paid training program where St. Paul teens work together to make meaningful media about community issues. This program provides young people entering grades 9-12 with hands-on media production experience. Interns learn camera operation, interviewing, and digital editing to create their own short documentary videos. Watch this video to see some of the fun interns had last year.
