Student Shack

As all of us are aware, getting young children, who will all to soon be replacing many of us, interested in amateur radio needs to be a high priority.  To this end the Stone Mountain Hamfest has for years brought a youth slant to our HamFest.  In fact we may have been the birthplace of the movement to get youth involved.  

With the increased emphasis on STEM (or STEAM in some cases) in the educeducational environment, we need to get involved.  That is the driving force behind our STUDENT SHACK.
