YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – WKBN paid a visit to an old friend — Flat Stanley — at Horizon Science Academy in Youngstown.

Flat Stanley came to the studio from the school last month, spending time with reporters, producers, meteorologists and even on the anchor desk. His adventures were chronicled in a scrapbook, which was given to the class.

The basic principle of the Flat Stanley Project is to connect the classroom with other children or classrooms participating in the project by sending out “flat” visitors, created by the children, throughout the community and beyond.

On Friday, WKBN participated in the Flat Stanley finale at Horizon Science Center, where children learned what all of their Stanleys had been up to.
