Girls Into Electronics

Every summer, we host the much-awaited "Girls into Electronics" programme in partnership with The UK Electronics Skills Foundation and Apple.

The programme gives Year 11’s and sixth formers the unique opportunity to develop their interest in the field of Electronics. Making advances in Electronics and semiconductors is critical to providing technological solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing society, including climate change, improving healthcare and better connectivity and communications.

During the day, participants will experience a sample lecture from a senior academic, input from current students, a department tour, a Q&A, and an introduction to microcontrollers. This introduction will be a ‘hands on’ practical session using the Grove Beginners’ Kit, including Arduino, which participants are provided with and is theirs to keep (find out more about the kit on the Insight into Electronics website.

The course was so insightful and made me consider a sector which I hadn't necessarily thought about before. It was amazing talking to so many inspirational women from the Electronics industry.
