Electronics Everywhere

An engaging, practical way for teachers to deliver the fundamentals of electronics.

Electronics Everywhere

'Electronics Everywhere' is an engaging and practical way for teachers to deliver the fundamental electronics/electrical parts of the curriculum. It is focused on raising attainment in A Level computing and physics, as well as promoting electronics.

Each school is provided with a classroom set of 10 curriculum-linked boards free of charge for physics and computer science.

The training for teachers is generally online, though there may be the potential for short face-to-face training sessions where possible.

Explainer videos are also provided online, along with extension work.

The project is a collaboration between the UKESF and the University of Southampton. Based on teacher feedback, 'Electronics Everywhere' is effective and resonates with teachers. 


Minimum of 2 participants, maximum of 30 participants.


Boards are loaned, free of charge, to state schools.


'Electronics Everywhere' is aligned to computing and physics A Levels and higher. The material covers around 4 to 6 lessons.
