Special effects were created by fog and lightning machines with flashing lights to simulate weather events. All of the students got to learn how to use the green screen and were able to test out television technology.
Each student also left the experience with a backpack filled with goodies. The event will be held twice a month at both the Media Arts Center and at the 24 Hour News 8 Kalamazoo studio.
