Clairton students were asked what they hoped for in 2016. Their wishes ranged from getting more money to dating a fictional, evil, TV character from the Disney channel (after they make him a good guy, of course.)
Students at Clairton were asked what they're looking forward to most this holiday season. After, they received more chances to experiment with handheld digital recorders, voice changers and wireless microphones and keyboards.
Students at Clairton wrote and recorded these pieces about where they live before receiving a crash course in audio editing with some help from a projector, wireless keyboard and mouse. They then were asked the all-important question: "Are you excited for the new Star Wars movie???!!!"
A new school year has begun and with it a new year of Radio Club at Clairton Middle School's CASTLE program! As an introduction to radio production--as well as to each other--5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students were asked to answer this writing prompt: "In three words, how would others describe you?"
Over the course of this semester, Elementary and Middle School students in Clairton's CASTLE program have been working hard each week creating awesome audio recordings and, to celebrate all their hard work, on this, their final day of Radio Club, students got to enjoy an awesome party!
Students at Clairton's CASTLE after school program finished building their DIY microphones!
Students at Clairton's CASTLE program, after learning how they worked, got to build microphones out of household materials! Using just two magnets, a length of copper wire, three washers, a nut, a bolt, a plastic straw and a cup, campers created an amazing piece of technology!
Students at Clairton were asked to describe the very first time they ever did, learned or experienced something amazing!
Students at Clairton CASTLE were introduced to the H1--a handheld, digital recording device. After learning the basics, they then formed small groups and took turns interviewing each other. Some opted to interview themselves with a silly voice and an alter-ego while some even interviewed a teacher!
Students at Clairton continued with their round table story telling project: "The Haunted Birthday Party," with each child adding their own personal twist to the already wild and expansive tale.
