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 focussed on raising attainment in A-Levels 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 Computing.

Teachers receive training on delivering the session in an engaging, hands-on, way. The training for teachers will initially be online, there will be a short face-to-face training session once we are able.

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. 

Capacity

Minimum of 2 participants, maximum of 30 participants.

Cost

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

Duration

Electronics Everywhere is aligned to Computing, Physics A-Levels and Highers. The material covers around 4 to 6 lessons.
