Tune Up, Tune In
Build it, tweak it, tune it, hear it!
Reconstruct a vintage-style radio in this hands-on workshop exploring the electromagnetic spectrum and broadcast technology.
The invention of commercial radio brought information into homes for the first time, and for many people, their radio sets were homemade. Using our amazing collection as inspiration your pupils will construct a simplified vintage radio set to hear a radio transmission.
The session will explore how the electromagnetic spectrum relates to broadcast technology, how radio waves carry information and how these are transformed into the sounds we hear.
This event will complement visits to our new Information Age gallery, opening in November 2014. Sessions will run on Tuesdays during term time at 11:00 and 12:45.
