Day 15: Philly Friday

On Friday, July 24 we all took the train to Philly for a “field trip”. After several trains and subways we arrived at our first destination which was Media Mobilizing Project. At Media Mobilizing Project Bryan, a worker there, told us a lot about media mobilizing project and what they do. They use media and communications to get out the message in the community to the community. Next we went across the street to Scribe Video Center where we got a tour and information about what they do.

Our third stop was WHYY studies where we got a great tour and told the Learning Lab’s Project manager Craig about our movie, and even asked him if we could have it aired on WHYY, that’s probably out of the question but it was worth a try. Craig gave us a lot of great tips for our movie and gave us a lot of inspiration. Around 1:30 we went to Reading Terminal Market and ate lunch. After that we had a tour at the Philadelphia Inquirer and even got to sit in on their daily editors meeting. Though the day was long we all had fun and learned a lot from this great experience. Hopefully we will take what we learned at all these places and use it constructively both in our movie and in our futures.

How is public transportation over there in Chester? I’m in LA and I’d like to hear what you guys have to say about your own public transportation system
