PBS39 will hold a free five-day media career academy June 15 to 19 at the PBS39 public media and education center, 839 Sesame Place, SteelStacks campus. The program is funded by a grant from the Lehigh Valley Business/Education Partnership.
Northampton and Lehigh counties' high school students will use the state-of-the-art production studios and equipment as they learn about media and other broadcasting careers. The students will visit Northampton Community College and DeSales University to gain information on academic programs, admissions requirements and financial aid.
The students' final project will be to write, produce and edit a video resume that they can take forward for future use.
