eNews Student Bureau

The METC eNews Student Bureau is typically comprised of high school journalism students from local districts and schools. They conduct interviews with conference presenters and attendees for both podcasts & video, written articles, and social media. We have hosted an elementary eNews group from Ladue who presented and interviewed the attendees along their journey.

The social media team members run the MET Twitter account @METCenews and Instagram @METCedplus during the METC Conference. In operation since 2012, the METC eNews Student Bureau brings students into a real-world experience comprised of authentic learning opportunities, including interviews, trouble-shooting and deadlines. View the Exhibitor & Sponsor Information Packet for more information about sponsorship opportunities.

Some media archives of the student work are listed in the chart below. Other METC eNews Student Bureau publications include:
