Explaining Amateur Radio to ASD Students

John Keslo,Â*W1MBG, Jamey Finchum,Â*KC1ENX,Â*and I (all members of the Nashua
Area Radio Club) recently had the chance to again visit theÂ*Academy for
Science and DesignÂ*(ASD) in Nashua, New Hampshire to provide an
Introduction to Amateur Radio for the students there. ASD’s goal is to be a
world-class school that specializes in science, engineering, mathematics
and design for students in grades 6-12.

ASDÂ*periodically holdsÂ*SPARKÂ*(SymposiumÂ*PromotingÂ*Advancement
ofÂ*Real-worldÂ*Knowledge) conferences,Â*which enable ASD students to learn
about areas which might help them to develop careers in Science,
Technology, Engineering and/or Math (STEM).

The students at ASD are extremely bright and are highly motivated to
develop STEM careers. We had about 65 students elect to attend the two
sessions that we presented and the kids showed a lot of interested in our
presentations.
Explaining Our High-Altitude Ballon Project

We began each session with some classroom time where we explained what
Amateur Radio is about and some of our club’s Amateur Radio Â*projects. We
talked about and showed components of ourÂ*High Altitude Balloon Project,
ourÂ*Satellite Ground StationÂ*andÂ*our Field Day activities. The interest
level among the kids was high and lots of questions were asked.
GOTA Contact during ASD Spark

We also put together an HF GOTA station in the lobby of the school. This
gave the kids a chance to get on the air and experience Amateur Radio first
hand. After the kids got over the usual “mic-fright”, they had a lot of fun.

We are looking forward to our next opportunity to participate in ASD’s
SPARK Day in the fall. This is one of the most enjoyable events of the year
for me.

Fred,Â*AB1OC
