Wireless Communication: Feb 3 - Apr 27, Grades 7 - 10

The goal of this course is to use Amateur Radio as a vehicle to improve the quality of education by providing a curriculum focused on wireless communications. The project emphasizes integration of technology, math, science, geography, language skills and social responsibility within a global society. 

Once the student has an understanding of the value of wireless technology, where it fits in today’s world and society, and some of the fundamentals of how it works, in other words once the student has achieved some level of wireless technology literacy…that is the time to encourage them to consider joining the fraternity of Amateur Radio and applying what they have learned.
