"Radio Blasters" Physics Camp

West Scranton students attended the "Radio Blasters" physics camp held by the department of Physics and Engineering at the University of Scranton. The three day immersive camp introduced students to electricity and magnetism with hands-on activities supplemented by mini lectures and demonstrations. Topics included waves, oscilloscopes, magnetic coils, loudspeakers, radio waves, simple crystal radios and software defined radios.
