LITTLE ROCK, AR - The C-SPAN bus is making two stops in the city today.
From 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., you'll find it at Mount St. Mary Academy on Kavanaugh Blvd. Then, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., the bus will be at The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas (River Market Ave. & E. 3rd St.) in downtown.
Seeing the bus gives visitors the opportunity to learn about C-SPAN’s programs and resources.
The C-SPAN Bus, now in its 21st year on the road, came to town on Saturday, stopping first at the Clinton Presidential Library.
The tour helps inform communities about the public affairs network’s ongoing First Ladies feature series. It is visiting cities, schools and universities across the country promoting C-SPAN’s educational and political resources for students, teachers and community members along the way.
This winter, the Bus tour will coincide with the finale of the series First Ladies: Influence & Image, which airs every Monday night at 8 p.m. on C-SPAN. Click here for more information on the series.
Aboard the C-SPAN Bus, visitors can learn about First Ladies and the networks’ other programming and resources through interactive technology. Highlights include:
- In-depth public affairs coverage and educational outreach
- Touch-screen quizzes on C-SPAN and the three branches of government
- Mobile devices demonstrating Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, YouTube, Tout, XM Radio and mobile apps
- HD cameras and production equipment demonstrating C-SPAN’s capability to produce public affairs programming aboard the Bus
