NEWBERRY – ETV has partnered with Colonial Williamsburg to broadcast their Electronic Field Trips into South Carolina schools, including Prosperity-Rikard Elementary School from Newberry County Schools.

Live and designed for students to ask questions of the Colonial Williamsburg historians and re-enactors, the Emmy-winning program airs monthly on The South Carolina Channel, a free antenna television service like its sister stations ETV and ETV World. The first program aired Oct. 10. A new program will air each month through April 2014.

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and sponsoring donors have provided funding for 23 South Carolina schools, including Prosperity-Rikard Elementary School, to receive scholarships that provide special materials to the classroom.

The South Carolina Channel can be found via antenna by placing a .2 after the local ETV channel number. Time Warner Cable carries the channel at 171. For a station listing, go to “About Us” at scetv.org . Teachers and parents can learn more about the Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trips, school scholarships and the schedule at scetv.org/learn .

The South Carolina Channel is currently broadcast on WRLK-DT (digital channel 35.2) in Columbia.
