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 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.
Last Friday, 5 club members were Elmers to 18 students at Merrimack High School, who also built the PIXIE kit. Thanks to Bill, AB1AV, Niece, KA1ULN, Mike, K1WVO, Jamey, AC1DC , Tom, AB1NS, and Fred, AB1OC for helping the kids to have a successful kit build.
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.
