Electronics classes for UK based schools. Courses include the history of electronics moving from analogue to digital, paired with hands on fundays and projects to take home.
During the day the kids will learn about the flow of electricity, how circuits work using Snap Circuits, the lego of electronics. They will learn how to build a basic switched circuit and ones with various sensors, motors and leds.
They'll learn about electricity and how this works and is related to electronics. From the production of electricity including, solar, wind, fossil fuel and nuclear, how it's distributed and gets to your home, and eventually how switches in your home turn on the lights or charges their tablets.
The electronics practicals are so fun and informative giving them real world examples of the use of electronics in their everyday lives.
Circuits are the backbone of electronics, they house the components, control the flow of electricity to the attached devices. They are vastly complex and extremely small nowadays but the old circuits are visible representations of what happens in electronics and computers.
This £30 computer is the place for all kids to start if they're interested in computing of any kind, be it games, biometrics, python, websites and everything in between. The reason for this is the Pi's are versatile with the languages and software you can use, as well as the connectivity to the outside world.
Snap Circuits was an excellent invention and something every child interested in electronics should have, without these it's very hard to teach children about electronics. This allows a child over 5 to build a circuit and see it working in the way they want and understand how and why it works.
