The mission of the GNU Radio Educators Group is to promote and support the use of GNU Radio in education, in the widest possible sense of the term - from Middle School through High School and Undergraduate to Graduate education, and for the general public. This includes both learning about GNU Radio (and DSP) as an end in itself, as well as using GNU Radio to facilitate wider exploration of, and interest in, science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
