Maine students investigate high school, model 'Ghost Hunters'

Students of a regional vocational school in Maine will be making use of their partnership with Portland High School, the country's second-oldest continuously operating public high school in Maine, to stage a paranormal investigation.

Modeled after Ghost Hunters, the new media program at Portland Arts and Technology High School will have a 16-person team using audio recorders, EMF meters, and IR cameras to investigate the school's haunted history. The hot spots the team will be looking into from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. include the library, auditorium and art room.

Following the investigation, the students will use footage to produce a 30-minute program similar to the Syfy show.

Is this the first steps towards a ghosthunting class at schools?
