We are raising funds to support a variety of STEM learning projects including High-Altitude Balloon projects, electronics learning projects, and license training for High School and Middle School students and new Hams wishing to enter the Amateur Radio Service and grow their skills. We are also raising funds to allow us to purchase and maintain equipment to provide emergency communications and associated training in times of disaster.

Its been a great year for the Nashua Area Radio Society and our Youth Outreach Projects. We've held multiple Youth Expos at local Ham Fests, we've held a special License Training classes for young people, we've helped the Students at Hudson Memorial School talk to an astronaut on board the ISS, we've supported STEM learning through HAB-4, and we've provided Amateur Radio based STEM learning experiences in local middle and high schools. Please consider helping us by supporting our fundraising drive.

The Nashua Area Radio Society is a 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to creating STEM learning opportunities and emergency communications training through Amateur Radio.

It's been a busy time for the Nashua Area Radio Society. We helped the students at Hudson Memorial School complete an Amateur Radio Contact with an astronaut on the International Space Station last December. This was a big project for us that was almost a year in the making.

We've also been working with the STEM club at Bishop-Guertin High School on a High-Altitude Balloon project. The students there have been learning about Atmospheric Science, Radio Telemetry, Space Communications, and Amateur Radio while we await favorable Jetstream conditions for launching HAB-4.

We are going to again be an anchor provider of the New England Tech Trek at NEAR-Fest Ham Festival in Deerfield, NH on October 12th and 13th.

The NEAR-Fest organization along with NARs members has agreed to match dollar for dollar all contributions made to our STEM Learning and Training fundraising project between now at the end of NEAR-Fest.

Please consider making a donation to our project as you contribution during this time will have double the impact in supporting our work to bring young people into the Amateur Radio service.

We've recently delivered an Amateur Radio Exposition for Young People at the New England Amateur Radio Convention in Boxboro, MA. Our Expo featured a kit building activity where mentors helped young people to build Morse Tutor kits. It was great fun! Our fund raising project supports our youth Expos and other activities to help young people to become pashonate about Science and Technology through Amateur Radio.

We recently held a Summer Technician License class for students, teachers, and their parents at the Hudson Memorial School in Hudson, NH. Our class included many hands-on activities such as Get On The Air and Portable Stations, Fox Hunts, Antenna Building, and Morse Code practice. The class was free to the students and our fund raising efforts allowed us to supply books and other materials for the class. Most of the students who took the class earned their Technician Licenses!
