      Children’s  Museum  was  able  to  build  a  new  creative   Kids Corner on page 7  Walker, Chris “Washer” Kearns
      space for children to learn about reporting breaking news
      and weather. The new exhibit features a green screen,
      production area, and headline wall. Visitors are able to
      select different backgrounds in the production area and
      learn how producers are able to cut in with breaking news.
      Then those who are not camera shy can report on stories
      or give the weather report in front of the green screen.
      Finally,  the  news  continues  as  visitors  write  today’s
      headlines in a “Mad Libs” style magnet wall.
         The purpose of this exhibit is to teach all the roles of
      producing the local news; on and off camera, and hopefully
      spark  an  interest  in  a  future  career.  Katie  Makemson,
