SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Sixth graders at Hamlin Middle School were put to the test as they built a working Morse code signalers on Dec. 19.
The Eugene Amateur Radio Society and Valley Radio Club helped pay for the supplies, and they also helped with teaching the STEM lab.

The project is part of the career technical curriculum in Springfield schools.
"You get to use a bunch of technology and make cool stuff, maybe program stuff. I want to do that," said Riley Hargrove, a sixth grader at Hamlin Middle School.
