Looking for ways to engage young students’ interest in engineering? Consider FM Radio. This learning modular comes with four separate projects for students to configure different radios. Building radios provides students a fun and easy way to understand engineering. The FM Radio sets comes with 1 bag of snap wires, 1 battery holder, 1 speaker, 1 FM module, 1 amp, 1 adjustable resistor, 1 base grid and 2 instruction sheets (1 in English and 1 in French). Targeted for students between the ages of 8 to 12 years old, FM Radio provides teachers with an effective way to cultivate student interest in challenging subjects like engineering.
Want to find out more about FM Radio? An activity kit is currently on display on the ground floor of the OISE Library, next to the Circulation Desk-OISE students.
