Re: FRN's

Bradley, KC1JMH
 

Perhaps they're concerned about sharing all of the required PII of a minor. Granted, it's no more than Boy Scouts require, but it is publicly listed. Perhaps some educational material is in order or a Q&A / FAQ video for parents may help assuage their fears. Maybe recommend a PO Box for their licensee to be, albeit an added expense.

Thank you,

FRN's

Billy Crow
 

Is anyone having problems with parents not allowing their kids to get FRN's?  I send home an information sheet with how to do it and why it's needed.  This semester, so far, I've had 2 students that told me their parents would not allow them to get the FRN, even if it means not getting their license.  Any ideas?

A very good video, but "British" style, maybe there is an American version somewhere?

The RSGB YouTube channel contains also a bunch of YOTA videos which may be useful.

Re: Welcome: Introduce yourself!

Kevin Reeve
 

Hello - Kevin N7RXE from Logan Utah.

My day job is at the University in IT stuff, and I love getting youth excited about amateur radio, space, STEM.  Our club is going to be hosting two 8 week hands-on space science with amateur radio workshops that will lead up to launching a high altitude balloon.  Our first one is targeting girls ages 11 - 17 and will start in March with a launch in May.  Amateur Radio is a big part of our hands on workshop.  Will include on air activities. working satellites. soldering, building LoRa receivers etc. 

I am currently serving as the ARRL Utah Section Youth coordinator and working on baby step-1 to encourage clubs  to plan at least one activity around youth in 2022.

Besides amateur radio, my other hobbies include RGB pixels synced to music outside of the house for halloween and Christmas light displays.  
Look forward to learning from all of you.  
Regards,

Kevin N7RXE - Logan UT


5E lesson planning

John Langdon
 

This model is a little more work, but is ideally suited to project based learning and a more in depth question and answer Socratic dialog.  It also allows you to see the key break points and understand how much to try to get across in a single week or period, and helps you set goals for formative assessment during the lesson.

Lesson Plan Template

Steve Goodgame K5ATA
 

Here is a link to a basic lesson plan template. A few folks have asked for one. I don't want anyone to get hung up on making their ideas/lessons fit a certain template, you all do enough of that at school. For those who have a specific format you use, post them how you make them. I will modify things to standardize them down the road. 

For those who want a place to start, here is a link to a template on Google Drive. Make a copy of it so you will be able to edit it..
https://docs.google.com/document/d/15WqFt8nuCo9FmLtGgiol31VATOzpf_V4qkJ0msSmbmQ/edit?usp=sharing

Thank you for everything you do for kids and amateur radio!

The repository is in the works, but it will take a little time before it is ready to go. The group list is more of a way for us to share ideas and ask questions. Things will morph over time into something much more robust, but everything has to start somewhere!

Hello Rebecca, 

Thank you for your kind thoughts and valuable contributions.  

We already have a group list, right?   So, what’s next is a repository for Lesson Plans, and I think Steve is setting that up.  But I didn’t hear how.  

Let’s keep the ideas and actions moving.  Thank you for your support!

Hi Steve, 

Thank you very much for your offer of the Lesson Plans.  If you could also post in the repository a generic age-appropriate Lesson Plan outline plus a kind of “fill in the blanks” Lesson Plan form then I believe that you will get more (potential) Lesson Plans from members of this group.  

Case in point: take me.  I am an engineer who visits high school and universities to interface with students on Amateur Radio and other technical topics (e.g., the AMSAT CubeSat Simulator, POTA opportunities, Raspberry Pi projects).  

I have noticed a chasm that seems to exist between teachers and many technical persons.  So, these supplemental tools I suggest will help garner additional quality plans.  

With us able to view Lesson Plans (dated and with version number) in our repository, we can review them, use them as examples for writing plans, and propose edits and updates to improve selected plans.   

Can we make this so?

Also, we know that teachers connect learning across multiple disciplines. We also know that principals like it when a lesson hits multiple standards. If a lesson/idea you post meaningfully hits multiple standards, it would be great if you could include those standards in the description.

Re: Welcome: Introduce yourself!

Carl K9ZA
 

Happy New Year to all.  First licensed in 1971 as WN9JWC while in the Belleville West Amateur Radio Club.  Retired school teacher, principal, and superintendent.  While teaching formed a radio club at a junior high school and helped approximately a dozen kids obtain their Novice license.  Only one upgraded and none of them are currently active, but several did go on into the electronics or radio related careers.  Served as an ARRL Educational Advisor while Illinois was adopting learning standards and aligned related standards to amateur radio related activities.  When doing Graduate Studies became inactive in the League activities.

Now retired, while still doing a small amount of substitute teaching.  Also drive a motorcoach part time.  Enjoy DXing, Field Day, and want to get back involved with CW Sweepstakes.  Have organized the Belleville West Alumni Amateur Radio Club and hope to do some on-campus displays and generate interest in a club there again.

73, Carl

Hi all,
I'm Luc ON7DQ (KF0CR), I live in Ostend, Belgium.
I retired in 2016, after a career of teaching at Ostend Polytechnic.
I ran a school club (ON4HTI) for 21 years, introducing many of my students to ham radio and homebrewing.
The most popular actvity was our participation in the School Club Roundup each year.
Our most popular homebrew project was the Neophyte Receiver from QST, but I think these days that would have to be a simple SDR receiver (Softrock, µSDX-RX, etc).
 
In the Ostend Radio Club, I regularly give presentations about antenna's, transmission lines, SOTA, etc.
My most popular talk was about the nanoVNA, it's on my YouTube channel , but unfortunatley, it's only available in Dutch.
 
Since I retired, I do a lot of homebrewing, SOTA & WWFF activations, and have regained interest in CW operating (member of SKCC, NAQCC and NTC).

And I am a technical coach of groups of kids age 10-11 in what we call the "STEM Academy".
What surprises me each time is that these kids are especially attracted to Morse Code ... despite all their smartphones, tablets or game consoles.
 
As we had nothing better to do during the Covid-19 crisis, I got the help of a local club member (who is a better programmer than me), to develop a nice project : 
The OST Morse Box.
I think this would be a nice project for a school club, it mixes Arduino with some analog electronics, ... and Morse Code of course.
It's not a "one afternoon" project, but with care and guidance, it can be done by anyone who can hold a soldering iron.
 
See the "demo box" that I built, it contains all possible options of this project, but a much simpler version can also be built.
There is a 50 page English manual which describes all the details.
All software, manuals, PCB files, ...  are available on these two github pages:
and 
https://github.com/on7dq/OST-Morse-Box-DG for an extended version, adding a decoder and a basic sine wave generator.
And soon to come on my YouTube channel : 4 videos in English, describing all features of our project.
 
I hope you can forgive my "sneaky publicity" here ... if you have any questions about this project, send me a private mail to my QRZ.com address, not via this thread.
 
73 and stay safe,
Luc ON7DQ

Sure, it sounds very interesting.  I have taught Digital Electronics, Robotics, programming and other technical classes here at Vista Ridge High School in District 49, CO.

I would be happy to introduce the topic to my students in January.  If we have interest, we will start a club.

Thank you.

My name is Billy Crow, K5LUO.  I am a teacher at Tecumseh High School, Oklahoma.  I teach Basic Electronics and Amateur Radio.  I started the program in 2019 after talking with the school superintendent about introducing students to basic electronics/amateur radio.  I gave a demonstration to him and the principles, of amateur radio.  They were all amazed and the program started in January 2020.  Covid hit, and really put a damper on things but I continued teaching on the internet.  I applied for a contact with the International Space Station through ARISS and was approved for a contact in December of 2020.  We began working on a future contact, in late spring through the fall of 2020.  That was an experience to say the least!  We were set up for a contact for December 4, 2020.  By then, our school was back in temporary session for in person and internet teaching.   We were worried that we might not be able to do it.  However, our superintendent was very supportive of this once in a life time event.  We proceeded on.  On December 4, 2020, at approximately 11:30 am CST, our dreams and goal were reached.  We made contact with NA1SS with Astronaut and Dr. Shannon Walker.   Everything worked....equipment and students performed above and beyond what was expected!  Our students, school faculty and parents were so excited, even to the point of tears of joy.  What a great time!  Here is the web address of the contact  https://w5nor.org/k5ths/
I received a grant from ARRL for books and 2 radios.  A local club, Pottawatomie County Amateur Radio Club, has helped tremendously with teaching and equipment.  We were able to put up a 50' tower, with a DMR repeater (Oklahoma Central Talkgroup).  The club donated several radios and other equipment from SK's and others.  The school has supported me in this adventure 100%.  
Some of the things I am teaching.......soldering, Arduino experiments, building antennas, basic electronics and numerous other amateur radio related topics.  We are in the process of forming the Tecumseh High School Amateur Radio Club.  Our callsign is K5THS.
