We want to provide opportunities for all age ranges across the country to develop and pursue an interest in Electronics – both in and outside of school, and on to university. Scroll down to find out what we offer across the Key Stages.
THINGS WE ARE DOING
The UKESF aims to ensure that all schoolchildren and young people are aware of Electronics and the variety of options available for study and work in the sector.
"It astounds me seeing how a device could be imagined, created and benefit lives. I want to be a part of the acceleration of Electronics."
Key Stage 2 - Robokid
A hands-on electronics project for use in the classroom with Years 5 and 6 that aims to encourage enthusiasm for Electronics and STEM subjects. Children work through a series of activities using a specially designed robot vehicle with the electronic elements left uncovered.
Key Stage 3 – Explore-a-Synth
Explore-a-Synth is an exciting new offering from the "Electronics Everywhere" family of projects for secondary schoolchildren.
Key Stage 3 - People Like Me
People Like Me is a revolutionary resource pack for girls aged 11–14, which uses a self-descriptive quiz to help them discover their strengths and what STEM-related careers could suit them.
Key Stages 4–5 - Girls Into Electronics
Girls into Electronics gives female sixth formers the unique opportunity to develop their interest in Electronics through a one-day course at a leading UK university, with additional content delivered online by the UKESF.
Key Stages 4-5 - An Introduction to Electronic Engineering
The UK Electronics industry is one of the largest and most successful in the world, but what is it all about? Developed by the UKESF in collaboration with the University of Birmingham, this free, online course introduces the fundamentals of Electronics.
Key Stage 5 - Electronics Everywhere
The UKESF works in partnership with the University of Southampton on this collaborative project featuring the Music Mixer circuit board and the Logic & Arithmetic Kit, hands-on activities that teach core Electronics concepts for A-level Physics and Computer Science students respectively.
Key Stage 5 - Insight into Electronics
Insight Into Electronics is an exciting new initiative from the UKESF. It is a self-paced, interactive and FREE course that provides young people with a hands-on introduction to microcontrollers, Electronics and programming.
