Schools Link project starts

| July 1, 2016

Now that the Tim Peake school contacts have finished, you might be thinking that it is all over.

As far as the RSGB is concerned, this is just the beginning of another big project.

The RSGB has set up the Schools Link Project to work initially with the 10 ARISS contact schools to develop wireless-related science and its technologies into activities for use in everyday teaching.

Ian, G3YNU is leading the project.

Some schools have already set up amateur radio clubs as a result of pupils getting their Foundation Licence to lead the ARISS contacts.

Others are being very active with their local clubs and are looking for ways in which to include amateur radio activities into their busy schedules, or are running Foundation courses for other pupils.
