        Connection Challenge: Building Stronger, Safer Communities | PBS NewsHour

        Inspired by Parkland students, three schools across the U.S. participated in the Connection Challenge as a way to step out of their comfort zones and connect with other young people at school with whom they wouldn’t normally interact. PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs teamed up with Snapchat on April 20th, the day of the National School Walkout, to cover the event.

        Watch the video and answer the discussion questions in our support materials below. Your class or school may want to hold its own Connection Challenge. Check out the extension activity linked below under Follow Up.
