Title: New England Tech Trek at NEAR-Fest, Science and Technology Expo
Post by: W1RC on February 08, 2018, 09:00:07 AM
Starting in May 2018 there will be a separate Exposition of New Technologies at NEAR-Fest,  The New England Tech Trek or NETT, will be similar to a mini Maker Faire, but more of an Exposition of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).  The emphasis will be for Youth Activities at the May 4th and 5th and October NEARFEST.   Several tables have been reserved for the Nashua Area Radio Society to include their:

High Altitude Balloon Project

Portable Satellite GOTA

Remote HF GOTA via SDR

Raspberry Pi Projects

Radio Direction Finding Display

SOTA/Portable Outdoor Adventures

Communicating via Morse Code

Amateur Radio Licensing

Internet of Things (IoT)

We have been given a key building inside area for this new feature and would like to entertain additional technology displays like:





Agricultural Technology

So, if you have anything you would like to display, contact me to discuss and reserve a table.  This will be a no cost exposition for the presenters and the Youth attendees.  No commercial sales will be allowed, but Information sheets are permitted.
