Shure Incorporated, the microphone manufacturer, is a proud sponsor of The MEMa Studio! They just happen to be based in Niles, IL, a suburb of Chicago. Our After School Matters, TechKno Camp teens went on a field trip to visit Shure and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating! The teens got to tour the entire facility and experience an anechoic chamber (photography wasn't allowed in some sections of the facility), an Rf chamber (where wireless microphones radio frequencies are tested) and the recording studio. They were also able to shoot a scene for their video project!
Please take a moment to read our Q1 Newsletter to keep up with our progress. We had an exhaustive but awesomely rewarding 2015... Check it out!!
WGN TV News visited our site and reduced a segment about our program and the "Perpetrators" project, a short film depicting how violence on the South Side of Chicago affects their daily lives.
