A Canadian film crew spent four days in the community last month filming for a TV segment on Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.
The hour-long episode will be part of a series titled ''Schools Like No Other,'' which is featuring 26 unique schools from around the world. It will air across Canada next year on TV 5 network.
The crew filmed classes at Maharishi School, interviewed teachers, and focused on two particular students: Middle School student Daniel Zhu and Upper School student Dia Huggins.
They filmed a Vedic Math class, a pottery class in which Ms. Huggins was making ceramics, and an active-learning class in which the students were trying to decipher a code that would reveal the location of a treasure. The latter exercise involved applying math and a variety of other skills.
The crew also filmed the students in their meditation* halls, the Men's Dome,** campus, and homes built according to Maharishi Vedic(SM) architecture.
The series is in French with voice-over for the interviews done in other languages. The episode will air in March.
The crew of four are part of a production company called Eureka TV and included the director, the producer/owner, a cameraman, and the show hostess.
''They loved being here and finding out what we're all about,'' said Ken Chawkin, MUM public affairs officer.
Other schools featured include . . . a Bollywood school, and a school in which the kids take classes while at sea.
Each episode features two schools, interweaving a narrative about the two schools throughout the hour. Maharishi School will be in the same episode as the students who are learning while at sea.

Global Good News comment:
* Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA features Consciousness-Based Education to develop students' inner creative potential while they grow in knowledge. All students, faculty, and administrators practise Transcendental Meditation, which has been shown through extensive published research to boost intelligence, creativity, and learning ability, improve brain functioning, and reduce stress—while it creates a well-rounded learning environment renowned for fostering student achievements in academics, sports, and the arts.
** The two Golden Domes on the campus of Maharishi University of Management, where Maharishi School is located, were built specifically for group practice of Transcendental Meditation and the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, which scientific research has found to reduce negative trends in society including violent crime in the USA, and increase coherence and positivity in national consciousness. In addition to MUM students, faculty, and community members, many Upper School students at Maharishi School also participate in this daily group practice.
