C-SPAN motor coach to visit Wake Forest on Jan. 18

C-SPAN’s 45-foot customized motor coach will visit Wake Forest on Jan. 18.  It will be parked along Wingate Road directly in front of Manchester Athletic Center from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.

This visit is part of C-SPAN’s “50 Capitals Tour,” which includes stops in Raleigh and cities/towns across North Carolina.

The high-tech, interactive C-SPAN Bus includes these resources:

  • Access to an exclusive interactive experience available on 11 large-screen tablets featuring C-SPAN programming and myriad of political and educational resources
  • A smart TV and classroom area for conversations with students and teachers
  • A high-definition TV production studio for taped and live programming
  • A 360-degree video station featuring C-SPAN’s unfiltered coverage of high-profile events and insightful, behind-the-scenes tours of U.S. landmarks
  • A D.C.-themed selfie station where visitors can share their Bus experience through social media

Students, faculty and staff are invited aboard the bus to learn about C-SPAN Classroom, a free online educational resource, and C-SPAN’s extensive online Video Library.  With more than 235,000 hours of public affairs content, the C-SPAN Video Library serves a great educational source and research tool, according to a C-SPAN news release.  A C-SPAN contact for faculty is Joel Bacon at jbacon@nullc-span.org.

“Charter is thrilled that the C-SPAN Bus is visiting Winston-Salem, bringing their political and educational resources to the community. We’re proud to partner with C-SPAN and look forward to residents, teachers and students stepping aboard to experience all that C-SPAN has to offer,” said Adam Falk, SVP of State Government Affairs for Charter Communications.
