DESCRIPTION

Children enjoying the Youth Technical Program at EMC2012

We are very excited to announce that ARRL: The national association for AMATEUR RADIO,has offered to present and sponsor the 2014 Youth Technical Program. Founded in 1914, the ARRL (American Radio Relay League) has made education a major pillar of its organization. Today, with more than 161,000 members, ARRL is the largest organization of radio amateurs in the world. HAPPY 100TH BIRTHDAY ARRL!

The Youth Technical Program will consist of two 1.5 hour workshops where youth companions of symposium participants will be introduced to the world of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and get some hands-on experience either building a project or using EMC related equipment.

In addition to the two workshops, on Thursday morning the Youth Technical Program and all companions (adults and youths) are invited to join a guided tour of the exhibition hall where the experts will show us their newest and coolest EMC devices.

The 2014 symposium is able to offer the Youth Technical Program free of charge due to the generosity of ARRL and the continued support of InField Scientific Inc., Pointe-Claire, Quebec, Canada. Dr. Amy Pinchuk, President of InField, was an original founder of this Program with its inception at the EMC Symposium in 2001.

We encourage all interested participants to register for the Youth Technical Program so that an adequate number of project kits can be prepared. The Youth Program is recommended for ages 8 to 19. Younger children are welcome if accompanied by an adult or older, responsible sibling.

Also, to avoid confusion, it should be noted that the Youth Technical Program registration does not include access to the Companion Suite or social events.

 

Special Thanks to:
