Some 7th and 8th graders at Drake Middle School are getting a heads start in television!

In the advanced technology class, students learn everything from how to produce a news show to maintaining a website.

Their website has received hits from all over the country.

The topics they tackle range everywhere from academics to sports, and the students and their teacher enjoy the class.

“The most gratifying thing with the TV show is it gives the students a chance to really express themselves, they do have art and music, but this is a media that they love,” said Tom Brohmer, Technology teacher.

The student run TV show and website is a team effort with each student in charge of a department.

Now, you can also take their show on the go!

Just subscribe to their show and then sync your iPod or iPhone.
