As digital natives, today's students are more likely to get their news from social media than print, but a group with media dreams have turned The Examiner's boardroom into their newsroom to produce student newspaper Momentum.
Almost 20 students from Northern Tasmanian schools and colleges between grades 7 and 12 have been visiting The Examiner on Tuesday afternoons for the past month.
They are almost ready to publish their print and online editions.

Newstead College's Alyssa Webb has been studying journalism, so jumped at the opportunity to become a student journalist.
"It sounds fun and is something I'd like to do," Alyssa said.
Cael Wilkinson-Reed, from Deloraine High School, said journalism was also one of his prefered career paths.
"There's more to it than I thought," Cael said.
The group have been taking through story development, interview skills, editing, newspaper layout and online media in the hands-on program.
Topics the students are writing about include health, education, environment, music and sport.
Momentum will be inserted into The Examiner on Friday, September 27.
