CHANNEL 13 WEATHER AT THE SCIENCE CENTER OF IOWA Each weekend, children from all over central Iowa interact with Channel 13 Meteorologists at our satellite interactive weather studio located at the Science Center of Iowa. Not only are there discussions about weather but also television production and the magic "green screen" plus children see our live weather broadcasts at noon and 5PM each day and receive educational weather handouts. ISU'S 4U PROMISE PROGRAM CLASS VISIT ON Thursday, February 16 and Thursday March 9, nine members of the Channel 13 News team visited and interacted with classes at King Elementary as part of Iowa State University's 4U Promise program. This program is a partnership between King and Moulton elementary schools in Des Moines and Iowa State University to promote college-going in these schools CHILDRENS INTERNET SAFETY whotv.com made available a free, downloadable Internet safety eBook, Growing Up Online, containing a unique learning tool that provides parents and teachers important information to help initiate conversation with older children about online safety. With half of all kids under the age of eight using Internet connected devices, one in three children cyber-bullied, it is more critical than ever to educate kids on using technology safely. Growing up Online is a media-rich eBook that provides easy-to-use content on navigating the digital world in an engaging way and was available as a free download for a variety of tablet devices in both English and Spanish. The eBook was also available online for desktop and laptop viewing. THE GOLDEN APPLE Each month during the school year, WHO-TV and a corporate partner honor one teacher in our viewing area that goes above and beyond the call of duty. Nominations are taken by letters written by children at the school that think their teacher shold be recognized. Then on the last Monday of the month, we visit the school and surprise our deserving teacher with an honor and a school assembly.
