Event Description

Children will have the opportunity to earn a “Certificate of Participation” for a two-way contact by amateur radio on Kids Day in the Discovery Lab at the Children's Museum of Oak Ridge. Participation is free with admission. Kids Day offers on-the-air experience to young people and aims to foster interest in getting their own amateur radio license. It also gives licensed ham radio operators a chance to share their stations and love for amateur radio with children. Children visiting the Museum will have the chance to speak with hams and other children all over North America from a radio station in CMOR’s Discovery Lab. Kids Day is sponsored by ARRL (Amateur Radio Relay League), the National Association for Amateur Radio.
