This week students learned about the history of radio and listened to several classic radio programs, e.g., Abbott & Costello and Superman. We also started to build our own crystal radios. This involved cutting wood and PVC pipe with a power miter saw. Students also drilled holes into wood using a template and cut copper pipe with a pipe cutter. Some were even able to start winding coils and building variable capacitors. Next week we will learn more about radios and continue to work on our crystal radios.
