K-6 Interactive Program
The National Capital Radio & Television Museum has launched a K-6 based on both Md. Dept. Ed. science, technology (STEM), and history curriculum, as well as the BSA communications chapter in the Tiger Cub book.
The program introduces children to how our voices and pictures are sent through the air to your home radio or television set. It’s a highly interactive series of activities and the program lasts approximately 50 minutes. After the program concludes, the Museum is open an additional 30 minutes so that the children and their adult caregivers may look at the exhibits.
As a result of the program, children will be able to:
• Understand how listening to radio or television affects how we live, work, and play.
• Understand the science behind how radios and televisions work .
• Morse Code sheet
• Little Orphan Annie Secret Society decoder badge from 1936 and two secret messages to decode at home
• NCRTV Museum patch
