We live in a world where technology has a massive impact on all of our lives. Smartphones, electric vehicles, robots, virtual reality systems, high-speed wireless communications – these are just a few examples of recent innovations that are changing our lives. And they have one important thing in common; they depend upon Electronics.
Each participant on the “Girls into Electronics” online course will receive a microcontroller, development board and a range of sensors. These free resources will be sent in the post prior to the course and will enable everyone to create and build their own simple electronic systems. We will provide all the necessary instructions, advice and support. No prior knowledge is necessary.
