- A TV station tour
- An Aquifer Workshop
KSPS-TV is the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) public television station headquartered in Spokane. We reach more than 2.3-million households in eastern Washington, northern Idaho, Alberta, and beyond. Step into studio CK to learn about the chroma key wall while seeing yourself in the monitor. You may see a set in place, if they are working on production that day. In studio B, with a camera/monitor set up, you will see how a teleprompter works. In Control A, you'll see how behind the scenes works such as a character generator, switching cameras, and each person’s role during production. Through the window outside the Master Control, watch what an operator monitors and learn about logs and traffic.
After the TV tour your kids will be treated to an aquifer protection program because of KSPS' partnership with Spokane Joint Aquifer Board. This popular workshop, presented by Kristen Zimmer and Elizabeth Lancaster, teaches students about our most precious regional resource: the Spokane Valley - Rathdrum Prairie aquifer. Children are presented with hands-on, inquiry based lessons about how to keep the aquifer clean and sustainable.
