Investing in Education

The ARRL Amateur Radio Education & Technology Program

The goal of the Amateur Radio Education & Technology Program (ETP) is to improve the quality of education by providing an educationally sound curriculum focused on wireless communications. The project emphasizes integration of technology, math, science, geography, writing, speaking and social responsibility within a global society.
ARRL Urges Support for Education and Technology Program
Mark Spencer, WA8SME, coordinates the ETP. The program provides participating schools with a turnkey Amateur Radio station and a complete wireless technology curriculum at no cost....

"Contributions by June 30 will place Amateur Radio in more schools and train more teachers in 2007," [ARRL Chief Development Officer Mary] Hobart says. Visit the secure ARRL Development Office Web site to donate.
... a Force for a Bright Future.
Plans are in place for four Teachers Institutes during the summer of 2007. Your contribution will help ARRL ensure another year for this landmark program. With your support another 60 teachers will benefit from the curriculum and activities of the week-long Teachers Institute.
