In November 2013, QST Magazine published an article highlighting several radio science education program supported and coordinated by the World Genesis Foundation members. QST is the official magazine of the American Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL).
For more than 15 years the World Genesis Foundation been using Amateur Radio in youth projects around the world. "Amateur radio has become one of our top two most successful projects that we use regularly to stimulate the interest and imagination of youth," said Heather Caton, President and CEO of the World Genesis Foundation.
"Amateur radio creates the opportunity to encourage youth to experience many new areas of learning and has something for everyone. A typical project may touch on many different academic areas including physics, electronics, computer science, mathematics, mechanical engineering and clean energy. They also teach and promote important life skills including teamwork, planning, problem solving, project management, communication, and cultural awareness and understanding."
While amateur radio has always been a part of youth education initiatives developed by the World Genesis Foundation, the QST article focuses on the integration of clean energy into several recent projects that dramatically increased interest and participation of a wider range of youth.
"We are also very grateful to Mr. Jerry Pyle, call sign WB7S, of the United States. Jerry spent many hours offering advice, or "elmering," with our team members in recent years to teach us on how to better inspire youth participation in Amateur Radio. Many of these projects would probably not have developed if it wasn't for his inspiration and guidance. Jerry also inspired Heather Caton test and acquire her amateur radio license and operates under the call sign W8GEM."
