HAB School Kit Builds

We have started our HAB-3 program and we are working with 4 schools who will be part of the launch.  Two of the schools, Bishop Guertin High School and Merrimack High School have been through the preparation sessions before.  To expand their involvement with STEM activities, the Nashua Area Radio Society has hosted kits builds at both schools.

The first kit build was held earlier this month with 6 students from Bishop Guertin High School.  They built the 40 meter Pixie Kit QRP radio, the same one the NARS built a year or so ago.

The students did a great job once they learned to solder and enjoyed the kit build.

The students are also learning morse code and there will be a morse competition in future sessions at both schools, using the Pixie kits built by the students.

All of the teachers and students had a great time and learned a lot during the kit build.  They are looking forward to the morse code competition.
