About the Reporting Labs
PBS NewsHour Extra Student Reporting Labs are classrooms, after-school programs and clubs around the country producing original, inspiring reports about how national and global issues affect local communities.
Twenty two passionate teachers from across the nation joined the Student Reporting Labs team for an inspiring day of professional development workshops. These educators, who traveled from as far as Alaska, Florida and everywhere in between, came with one goal in mind: to learn new ways to engage and educate the next generation of journalists.
