Campus Screening to Precede Series’ Broadcast Premiere

"Working Class"
“Working Class”

Penn College, in partnership with WVIA Public Media, will premiere a new “Working Class” film series this month on public television. An on-campus screening of the first episode will take place prior to the broadcast premiere. The series was inspired by audience response to the Telly Award-winning documentary “Working Class: 100 Years of Hands-on Education” produced in conjunction with the college’s 2015 centennial. Faculty and staff are invited to view “Working Class: Dream & Do” at 3 p.m. Thursday in Penn’s Inn (second floor, Bush Campus Center). The episode will premiere on WVIA public television in Northeast Pennsylvania and the Central Susquehanna Valley at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26. The six-episode series will include hourlong films, as well as online video, activities and resources that relate to a variety of Penn College majors. The first explores careers related to design: graphic design, web and interactive media, architectural technology, industrial design and engineering design technology. Penn College faculty and students, as well as youngsters from the Dunham Children’s Learning Center, are featured. Segments also include Bucknell University, Wellsboro High School, Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown, and GE Inspection Technologies in Lewistown.
