Now, more than ever we are surrounded by artificial images, reproduced soulnd and wireless transmission of various kinds.

There is – and has been for decades =- a real neglect in our secondary education to teach people even basic ideas about the technologies of television, recorded music and radio. Everyday technologies are converging with computers and the internet with an increasing presence in most people’s lives.

Simple experiments to show some of the basic operating principles of television, recorded sound and radio with  time for discussion about the health effects of these technologies.
