My children know very well about my fascination and passion for Amateur Radio. They probably just thing of it as a "Dad thing", without much meaning for them. But that just might change.
It is time for my 9 year old son to come up with a project for this year's science fair in school. He was a little undecided about what to do when I started explaining to him about the electromagnetic spectrum; and how there are other parts of it besides light.
That's when we got to the part about radio waves; and I asked him if he'd like to build a radio that wouldn't need batteries out of simple household objects. His interest was piqued and now we have a project to work on together.
Hopefully, it will go over well; and maybe, just maybe a few radio seeds will be planted for future cultivation.
