Radio activities will soon resume at the John Tobin Elementary School, according to Harvard Wireless Club Station Manager Tim McBride, N1QZY. McBride reports that he’s been in contact with Peg LeGendre, Science Mentor Teacher for the Cambridge Public Schools and advisor for the After-school Science Club.
“She says that they are ready to unpack the gear and begin,” says McBride, who adds that the group has an additional parent as a volunteer. “She can use additional help, especially female undergrad role models,” McBride adds.
Last year, LeGendre was awarded a Project Grant under the ARRL’s Amateur Radio Education & Technology Program (a.k.a. “Big Project”). The grant application, authored by LeGendre, was billed as a collaboration of Dr. LeGendre and the Harvard Wireless Club.
