When works of art get damaged or faded, especially when they’re valuable or have sentimental value, it’s a shame to just let them go. Helena will visit an art conservator and learn how she preserves and repairs art. The way we get our news has evolved over the years. We’ll hear how a digital editor manages a TV station’s digital platforms and keeps on top of breaking news. When someone calls 911 for an emergency, it is imperative that the person who answers the call is able to assist in a quick and calm manner. Shawn will meet a communications officer and learn how he handles 911 calls.
