Students deliver the announcements live each morning during homeroom. They take turns working as broadcasters, sound engineers, and computer engineers. They also serve on the Newsletter team and assist with taking photos, interviewing special guests and/or writing articles for school events. They learn valuable workplace skills and receive school-wide recognition for service learning credits.
Summer 2015: Camp Exploration was provided for rising 7th, 8th and 9th grade students in Chesterfield, Marlboro and Dillon Counties. The camp was held July 13 - 17. This year, NETC added Robotics and Forensic Science to the curriculum! We also added tours to Conbraco Industries and Screwmatics in Pageland. An awesome week!
Summer 2014: Two of our broadcasting members attended Camp Exploration on the campus of NETC in Cheraw. They spent an entire week attending college classes with other students from Chesterfield and Marlboro Counties. Classes included machine tool, engineering, electronics, computer networking, cable and fiber optics, graphic design and powerpoint presentation design, computer assisted drafting CAD, nursing, DNA cell analysis, They learned about various career options, participated in team building activities and took a tour of WCRE in Cheraw. In addition to spending time in the studio with Susan and Leighton to learn about broadcasting and radio program design, they learned about The Link newspaper. Divided into two teams, each group recorded a PSA (public service announcement) about camp which aired for two weeks on WCRE following the camp. Both teams also produced powerpoint presentations which they delivered to parents and other guests at the week-end celebration. What an amazing week!
As a result of grant funding, NETC offered the camp to rising 7th and 8th graders in Chesterfield, Marlboro and Dillon counties.
