Amateur Radio for 5th Graders

Bob KK4DIV got an invite from his neighbor to give a talk and demo of amateur radio for 5th graders at North Bay Haven K-5 in Panama City, Florida. These students were not going to Space Camp with their classmates. Some tie in with Space was a goal. Bob assisted by Jack N1HQ gave a talk about ham radio and played these videos inside. The students then went outside where Greg N4KGL had demos on Morse Code, energy, and HF communications. Bob and Jack assisted the students with a Fox hunt in the field behind the school. The students were sponges for this material and were very engaged. The hams enjoyed doing it also.
