A team from the PBS NewsHour recently visited Reporting Labs sites in Connecticut to help students get started on their videos and to discuss the project with teachers and mentors. During the visit, Reporting Labs students also had the opportunity to talk with NewsHour Correspondent Hari Sreenivasan via Skype and were able to tour the studios of Connecticut Public Television.
