Take a Trip to The Hamilton Commons

Bring your class or after-school group on a field trip to WHYY! Take a tour of our TV and radio studios and get hands-on experience with WHYY's video equipment. Your students will conduct person-on-the-street interviews on Independence Mall. Students taking a tour of the WHYY studios during a field trip produced the short documentaries below about their experience.

See what other groups have said:

"In all the trips we have taken over the years with our students, we are certain our Cheltenham students engaged in a unique and wonderful experience that far outshines anything else we have been fortunate to offer them."
       -Cheltenham High School

"It is through visits like this...that students begin to envision career opportunities for themselves and learn how important education is for their future."
       -Trenton After School Program
