Kent and Medway
Over 30 STEM Ambassadors and Teachers attended a ‘Build a Radio Twilight Workshop’ organised by Kent & Medway STEM (KM STEM) in collaboration with IET in “Bringing STEM Alive” Project. All attendees were provided with instructions on how to build a radio along with some chocolate currency to spend should they need help.
Just over an hour in to the session the first signal was picked up by teachers from Harvey Grammar School. As the session went on there was frustration and determination from the other teams, radios were shared around teams and tinkered with until the coffee and cake ran out. The radio kits, instructions and twilight session have been created with the help of STEM Ambassador Philip Moffitt.
The aim now is for the teachers to set up STEM Clubs at their schools with the build a radio project of which Philip and the other STEM Ambassadors who attended the event will support with the kits provided by KM STEM’s funding from The IET.
