CBHS students attend tech conference
Mr. Tompkins, Journalism and Broadcasting teacher at Copper Basin High School personally sponsored a field trip to Knoxville for a select group of students from his Journalism and Broadcasting Class.
“I had an opportunity to take my leading student video editors to a technology conference held by media software giant Avid and Marshall Graphics Systems, a local systems integration company to expose them to the professional world of film and television video and audio production and editing.”
According to Hannah Fuller “This field trip was a great way to expose high school students like me to the real world of video editing and business.” Tyler White added “the Avid representative took nearly 25 minutes of his time and personally demonstrated the software to the three of us. I left with a clearer understanding of the Avid suite of products.” Holly Wooten continued “it was a great experience learning about the new Avid technology and the people were as nice as possible! I hope to be able to take more trips like it!”
“In route we had a chance to take a quick tour of the University of Tennessee Knoxville where the students got to see this amazing city size campus and enjoy a college meal at the on-campus International House of Pancakes restaurant.
