Capitol Classroom

Capitol ClassroomTVW’s hands-on civics education program lets students participate directly in the state legislative process via TVW video connection. In Capitol Classroom students and teachers work with lobbyist volunteers to choose legislation to support, oppose, or amend. Then, through TVW video conferences, students communicate with their lobbyists during the session and track their legislation. The goal of Capitol Classroom is to provide a rich and immersive learning experience by investing students in the process and connecting them with professionals in Olympia.

For more information, read the 2017 Capitol Classroom program guidelines.
