New England Technology Trek at NEAR-fest, May 4-5, 2018

A Hudson, New Hampshire amateur is proposing a youth event at NEAR-fest on May 4-5, 2018.  Dubbed “New England Technology Trek,” the event’s focus is to expose youth to a number of exhibits and activities, including:

  • 3-D printers and CAD
  • Robotics.  Build a circuit. Build a robot
  • Drones, homemade and various applications
  • Space communications,  HAB and portable satellite station
  • Kit building
  • Software Defined Radios
  • RaspberryPi and Arduino applications
  • Fox hunting and outdoor adventures (SOTA)

Bill Barber, NE1B says a number of schools have been invited to participate. “You will see yellow buses on Friday, followed by kids and their parents on Saturday.  Stop by the Arts & Crafts Building to see what is happening. That’s the big building near the Fairgrounds entrance, the one with the VE tests downstairs.”

NE1B is looking for volunteers to help staff the eighteen- to twenty different exhibits. “Contact me if you can help for an hour or two.”  []
