Daimler, Kennedy Center form education program


FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — Daimler Financial Services Americas LLC and the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts have partnered to offer the “On Location: Spotlight on Your Community” education program.

A school bus manufactured by Daimler Trucks North America subsidiary Thomas Built Buses that is outfitted with a suite of laptops equipped with media creation tools will stop at 10 middle schools from January to June 2009.

Students will be encouraged to use the technology to express themselves artistically against the backdrop of their communities, schools and classmates, and the finished products will be posted online.

Teachers will receive instruction on how to use the equipment from a digital media professional provided by the Kennedy Center, and students will learn the art of creating and telling stories from a Kennedy Center theater professional.

The deadline to apply for the program is Nov. 5. For more information, visit
