ARRL Announces 2018 Teachers Institutes on Wireless Technology Sessions

02/14/2018

As partial of a educational overdo by a Education Technology Program (ETP), ARRL will offer 3 sessions of a Teachers Institute on Wireless Technology this July. The week-long workshops will be hold during ARRL Headquarters in Newington, Connecticut, and in Dayton, Ohio — hosted by a Dayton Amateur Radio Association (DARA). The Teachers Institute (TI) is an expenses-paid, veteran growth convention that provides teachers during all class levels with collection and strategies to deliver elementary electronics, radio science, space technology, and satellite communication, as good as continue science, introduction to micro-controllers, and elementary robotics in their classrooms.

The Teachers Institute curriculum is designed for encouraged teachers and other propagandize staff who wish to learn some-more about wireless record and move that believe to their students. The idea of a TI module is to supply educators with required foundational believe and — by hands-on training — beget a impulse for teachers to continue exploring wireless record and adjust what they learn to their classroom curricula.

Interested educators can apply online. The $100 enrollment price is refunded for field who are not selected. A competent applicant contingency be an active clergyman during an elementary, middle, high school, or village college/university, or in a care or improvement instruction purpose in an after-school program.

Topics lonesome in a TI-1 “Introduction to Wireless Technology” seminar include elementary electronics, radio science, microcontroller programming, and elementary robotics. Among other activities, participants will learn how to solder and use by building a tiny project. They’ll also learn elementary circuit concepts and learn how to use elementary exam equipment. In addition, TI-1 attendees will learn about Amateur Radio, take partial in a dark conductor hunt, see demonstrations of Amateur Radio satellite communication, and build and module their possess elementary robots.

The TI-2 “Remote Sensing and Data Gathering” seminar will combine on analog-to-digital acclimatisation and information sampling. Participants will accept telemetry from Amateur Radio satellites and request it to math and scholarship topics. TI-2 participants will also erect a sea investigate buoy versed with environmental sensors, build a microcontroller to representation a data, configure it for Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) transmission, and accept and upload information to a spreadsheet for analysis.
