About SARC

The most important thing is that, for a select group of school students, School Amateur Radio Clubs are a real club: A place to be at lunch time, in a group with similar interests. Everyone in the group is equal. It is not a lesson; there are no exams, but each week there are really cool things to see and do. There are activities to guide them, missions to challenge them and the whole world of amateur radio to expand their horizons.

For principals, teachers and parents: School amateur radio clubs are a free collaboration between educators and amateur radio enthusiasts for the purpose of introducing science and technology to students in an exciting lunch-time activity.

For more information please see our SARC article.
