What are the EAR MODULES?
The MODULES are a series of in school lessons designed by professional event technicians to train the next generation of certified pros. These modular lesson plans cover 15 different topics and can be modified to fit any classroom, Afterschool program, or summer camp.
MODULES are 40 minute learning sessions, perfect for classrooms, “Out-of-School-Time” programs, or individual learners that can be customized to fit your students’ needs and adapted to your class curriculum or special interest.
Our programs provide technical trainings and creative projects that benefit learners by building their understanding and comprehension of the Event Technology Arts.
Through STEAM activities, students will improve Math, Science, and Art skills. All trainings are applicable to the event production and broadcast industry whether students are interested in pursuing a career or starting their own YouTube page.
