Did You Know Our Show Has Its Own Paparazzo?

Interviewing students about magnetism
One of the neat things about Classroom Close-up, NJ shoots is that we usually have a photographer along with us. Most of the time (but not always), that photographer is the show's executive producer, Wanda Swanson. Her photos get posted on the show's website, facebook page, and sometimes even end up on air as part of the finished package.

Here are some of the photos Wanda took when we went to Mountview Road Elementary School in Hanover Township to tape a story called, "Teaching From Space". It's about five educators who participated in NASA's zero gravity flight program and are bringing the experience into the classroom.

Teachers with the right stuff
Magnet races
More magnetism experiments
No, we didn't go on the flight. This is a picture of a picture.

The "Teaching From Space" story will premiere on the Dec 11 episode of Classroom Close-up, NJ on NJTV. If you want to see all the photos from this shoot (and many others), you can find them on the show's facebook page.
