Tennessee Club Gets Two Educational Grants

The Andrew Johnson Amateur Radio Club in Greeneville, Tennessee, is putting a pair of grants to work to increase exposure to amateur radio and to use ham radio as a tool in teaching science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The ARRL Letter reports that the club received more than $5500 from the ARRL Foundation Club Grant Program, which it is using to create the “Youth STEM Through Amateur Radio Project” in conjunction with the Greene County Makers and a homeschool group. The second grant, of $500 from Walmart’s Volunteerism Always Pays program, was used to purchase up-to-date books on amateur radio for the local public library.
