While surfing around earlier, I happened across the Web page of GB4FUN. What a great project this is! According to the website:
GB4FUN is a mobile fully self-contained communications centre that is already visiting schools and events up and down the country. The project is primarily aimed at supporting those studying for GCSEs and inspiring them into science based careers.
And, as the website points out:
It should also be remembered that GB4FUN not only teaches communications science but also can be used to assist in language studies, increase geographical knowledge and develop social skills.
I really love this idea. Anyone have any ideas about how we might do something like this here in the U.S.? Do you think we could convince telecom and electronics companies to pony up some funding?
