Project Information:
   Project Name: Hams and STEM (sample)
   Project Summary:
   The Children's Museum conducts several after-school camps and clubs, including one called
"Infectious Intelligence"; that targets Jr. and Sr. High School Students with projects
designed to encourage participation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities.
We propose a project to build SDR radios using Arduino boards and using these to further train
students in radio and computers. Classes will focus both on the design and construction aspects as
well as learning information to enable becoming licensed as Amateur Radio Operators at the end. We
are working with the local CMARC (Columbia Montour Amateur Radio Club) to provide some instructors,
materials and to administer the tests at the end.
   Project Impact:
   This will introduce the excitement of modern communication equipment in a fun environment to
students who may initially become Ham Radio Operators, but even more important may pursue STEM
   Project Measures:
   We hope to have 10-15 students involved with 50% who will become Ham Radio Operators and able to
communicate with others in their group with radio equipment they have built. We will get at least
one published report from a local newspaper about the class, and will submit stories and pictures
for additional coverage to TV stations and national magazines.
