Amateur Radio has long been fertile ground for gaining knowledge and skill with electronics technology, as well as for hands-on experimentation and application of technology. Using Amateur Radio in the classroom is a proven and effective way to teach both fact and theory and align with state and national learning objectives– in STEM curricula– as well as other content areas.
ARRL’s Education & Technology Program, provides resources and training to help teachers learn how basic electronics and radio science is applied in today’s technologies, and how to bring this knowledge to their students. An overarching goal of the Program is wireless technology literacy, for teachers and students.
