A Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young song goes:
Teach your children well,
Their father’s hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picked, the one you’ll know by.
How can we expect kids to pick up on ham radio if we don’t show it to them?
How do we do this? Well, the online article “Teach-in” will give you some ideas. This article describes how a group of Florida hams demonstrated ham radio to a bunch of elementary kids.
As someone who’s done this many times myself, I can tell you that kids ARE interested in amateur radio and even Morse Code. Get out and do it and you’ll find it a very rewarding experience.
