    The New England Amateur Radio Festival (NEAR-Fest) and the Deerfield Fair Association will present a science and technology exposition for young people. The event at the Deerfield Fairgrounds, in Deerfield, New Hampshire, will take place Friday, October 12, and Saturday, October 13, as part of NEAR-Fest XXIII. Each spring and fall, the New England Tech Trek (NET2) provides middle- and high-school students with an informal, hands-on introduction to real-life applications and the fun of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The display will feature Amateur Radio and other technology, including a high-altitude balloon with radio telemetry, robotics, Raspberry Pi projects, radio direction finding, and software-defined radios. The Nashua (NH) Area Radio Society (NARS) will offer five "Get on the Air" stations that attendees can use. Admission to the NET2 expo is free.
