Stop the Presses!

You’re the editors-in-chief – can you choose what’s news and make your deadline?

This one-hour experience takes you behind the scenes to discover how newspaper editors decide what makes the front page every day. You’ll take on the roles of editors and designers and investigate the factors that influence which stories make the cut. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll work in teams to design your own front pages. It’s a race to make deadline – and working together is the only way to cross the finish line in time!
