We received the following announcement for the Student Shack at the Stone Mountain Hamfest. Additional details will be posted as they become available.
Plans Are Developing for the Student Shack at the Stone Mountain Hamfest.
Do you know young people who are interested in Amateur Radio? Please plan on bringing them to the Student Shack at the Stone Mountain Hamfest. Once again this year, the Student Shack has completely replaced the Youth Lounge of old. There will not be any coloring books or bead bracelet to be found. Instead, aimed at the growing number of students at schools with Amateur Radio programs, either during the school day or as an after school activity, the Student Shack will offer a series of educational opportunities for these budding hams.
The full schedule of activities is still being developed. We will share the full list here in about a week, so stay tuned!.
The Student Shack will run only on Saturday, November 5, during the Stone Mountain Hamfest. Bring your students, their friends, and any youth who have that spark of interest early to the Student Shack while you peruse the bone yard. You better hurry though because the students might find that bargain before you!
