I’ve just shared a new project: “Borg Cube for Scouts STEM Camp”
What does one make for a Startrek-themed STEM camp for Scouts? Especially when given the Search and Rescue (SAR) activity base to run.
Why this base you ask? Usually I run a radio direction-finding activity since I am an amateur radio operator. We hide a set of small transmitters operating in the amateur 2m band, and the youth search for these with small directional antennas (Yagis) and receivers.
So - first thought - pick some Trekkie things that ‘could be searched for’, attach the transmitters, and voila - we have an activity!
