Will your club support this?

The March issue of QST includes an announcement of the Teachers Institute schedule for 2015 on page 83.  Included in this article is a sidebar asking members to consider funding a seat at the Teachers Institute.  I hope you might encourage clubs in your section to consider this as a possible fundraising activity.   The Teachers Institute depends on donations to the Education & Technology Fund.

We now have brochures with information about the 2015 Teachers Institute available.  If you would like to have some on hand to provide to educators in local schools please send me an email with your request.

Also in the March issue you’ll see an article about a recent Teachers Institute grad’s efforts to integrate Amateur Radio into his high school’s electronics curriculum with the support of a local ham radio club.    You’ll find that story on page 81.
