C-SPAN bus stops at Belmont on ’50 Capitals Tour’

The C-SPAN bus, an interactive, mobile learning lab for students and teachers, stopped by Belmont as part of its “50 Capitals Tour” Wednesday morning.

The bus is visiting all 50 state capitals as part of a 14-month tour. This year will mark the 25th year C-SPAN has used the bus to promote its platform for political news coverage.

The bus teaches students and teachers how to deliver unbiased news with a multimedia presentation center where visitors can interact with C-SPAN’s public affairs content and programing.

Students can also be filmed on C-SPAN’s StudentCam, in order to speak on issues they are passionate about. The videos are then put on C-SPAN social media platforms.

A C-SPAN representative also speaks with at least one state-elected official in each capital it visits. The representative interviews the officials and encourages them to listen to the students’ opinions.
