What you'll learn

You’re the editors-in-chief — can you decide what stories are newsworthy and make deadline? In Stop the Presses!, you’ll take on the roles of editors and designers and investigate the factors that influence which stories make the cut. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll work in teams to design a front page. It’s a race to make deadline — and working together is the only way to finish in time!
