Showcase radio in British Science Week

| January 18, 2019

British Science Week runs from 8 to 15 March 2019 and is a fantastic opportunity to showcase radio communications in the 21st century to young people.

The RSGB is encouraging clubs to develop relationships with their local school or community group.

The theme for this year is ‘journeys’.

Ideas for activities could include the journey from Marconi to wi-fi, or to ARISS contacts, or the journey of a radio wave from transmitter to receiver without wires.

RSGB clubs are ideally placed to put on a local event.

If your club already has a link with a local school, why not work with them to run an amateur radio-related event during BSW?

The Radio Communications Foundation is keen to sponsor such events and can provide radio kits to build.

These have already been used in primary and secondary schools with great success.
