A Visit to the TV Station

One of the required field trips for earning the Tiger badge is visiting a TV or radio station. Our den scored a visit to the local Fairfax Channel 12 station.

“Before” group shot of the boys (and a few older brothers).

David got to come along, too.

We toured the whole facility, disrupting at least a dozen people trying to get their work done.

The equipment room. Our tour guide was very good about answering the kinds of questions 6-year-old boys ask.

After looking at the office spaces and equipment used to make some of the PSAs Channel 12 puts out, the kids got to see the studio. With the green screen. Everyone got his turn acting in front of the green screen while we cheered for him on TV.

It’s weather man Matthew!

Field trip = fun!
