The new, high-tech, interactive C-SPAN Bus includes these upgraded 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

While on the "50 Capitals Tour," the C-SPAN Bus will visit local schools in each state. Students and teachers will learn about C-SPAN's national documentary competition, StudentCam. Awarding $100,000 in prize-money, the competition challenges students to produce a 5-7-minute documentary using C-SPAN video to explore a local or national issue of importance. This year's theme, "The Constitution and You," asks students to pick any provision of the U.S. Constitution and illustrate why it's important to them.
