The new "Snap Circuit electronic kits are a big hit with the kids at the DAR Boys & Girls Club in Menominee, Michigan. DAR volunteer, Mike Lemke (KD8FUE) is seen here with a couple youngsters and exploring electronics project from building a flying helicopter rotor to a local radio receiver.
Kids can win one of these Snap Circuit kits by answering our "Question of the Day", which are taken from the Technician Class question pool. These kits are solderless, which makes them safe and convenient to assemble to 300 projects that can be built from them.
Additional activities are "The Question of the Day" where members learn questions from the Technician license question pool - one at a time making the info less intimidating and at a comfortable pace. Members also have access to 3 ham radio stations, both HF and VHF/UHF
