Last Updated by WVIA Admin on

“Working Class: Build & Grow Green,” an hour-long documentary co-produced by the Pennsylvania College of Technology and WVIA Public Media will premiere Thursday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. on WVIA television.

 

The second episode of a Telly Award-winning series, “Working Class: Build & Grow Green” invites viewers to consider a wide range of options available to those who are considering “green” careers, which support wise use of natural resources.

 

“Millennials are really, really focused on sustainability issues,” said one faculty member interviewed for the film, which explores opportunities related to architecture and sustainable design, building construction and construction management, building automation, electrical technology/power generation, heating/ventilation/air conditioning, forestry and horticulture.

 

Following the broadcast premiere on WVIA, the episode will be available for viewing online at http://workingclass.tv/. The website also features a producer’s blog and educational resources selected to help K-12 teachers link classroom activities with the series.

 

The audience may follow “WorkingClassTVSeries” on Facebook and “workingclass_tv” on Twitter and share comments via social media.

 

The premiere episode of “Working Class” was awarded a 2016 Bronze Telly Award and appeared on WHYY and MindTV in Philadelphia, WQED in Pittsburgh, WLVT in Allentown and WPSU in State College, in addition to WVIA.

 

Executive producers for the series are Elaine Lambert and Tom Curra. The series’ director is Christopher Leigh. Penn College students involved in filming and editing this episode are Jeffrey A. Stanley, of Stewartstown, and Colin B. Helm, of Montoursville.
