Memorial Middle School students experience the C-SPAN Bus

Education

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The giant C-SPAN bus is in Sioux Falls stopping at local schools to educate students about the federal government.

C-SPAN says it’s been offering an unfiltered view of the government on its television channel for 40 years. Representative Joel Bacon says its website also has 250,000 hours of searchable video for anyone wanting to learn more about what goes on in Washington, D.C.

“Hey what is your federal government? Where is it located? Kind of take them inside D.C. a little bit,” Bacon said. 

The C-SPAN bus has been traveling the country since 1993 visiting schools and communities. The bus is off to Des Moines next.
