9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
We are partnering with The UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UKESF) to host the Girls into Electronics course.
The course gives female Year 11's and sixth formers the unique opportunity to develop their interest in Electronics through a one-day course, with additional content delivered online by the UKESF. Participants will find out more about Electronics and studying the subject at university level, as well as hearing from female graduate engineers working in the Electronics sector.
During the in-person day, attendees will experience a sample lecture from a senior academic, input from current students, a department tour, a Q&A with a UKESF Scholar and an introduction to microcontrollers. This introduction relates to the Grove Beginners’ Kit, including Arduino, which participants are provided with and is theirs to keep. Follow-up online sessions will guide participants through further practical activities with the microcontrollers.
Booking the course costs just £25 to cover administrative fees, as attendance of this high-value course is fully sponsored by CSA Catapult.
