COLUMBIA — Residents of Columbia will have the opportunity to tour C-SPAN's Digital Bus from 1 to 3:30 p.m. today in the Eighth Street circle, next to the Missouri School of Journalism.
The C-SPAN Digital Bus, which has been touring since summer 2010, aims to provide people with an interactive and educational experience to enhance their thought and discussion on government, C-SPAN's website states.
C-SPAN invited student groups on campus to tour the bus, including College Democrats, College Republicans and the Missouri Student Association.
The bus is described as a "grassroots outreach vehicle for education and community outreach," C-SPAN representative Heath Neiderer said.
The bus travels 35 weeks out of the year. Students, teachers and Columbia residents will be able to learn more about presidential campaigns for the 2012 election as well as what other resources C-SPAN offers.
There will be MacBooks, touch screens and Smart Boards aboard the bus for people to interact with.
All residents are invited to tour the bus, and the activities are free.
