Circuit Building Sessions

If you are somewhere between 12 and 15 years of age and you have an interest in electronics, circuits and electrical gear, then this is for you! Visit us at the Curtin electronics lab, and our Engineering Outreach Mentors will help you to understand how the world of circuits and electronics works.

A Circuit Building session is one day only, from 11am to 3pm. Starting with a session about the basics of soldering and electrical circuits, we then take you through the process of building your own electronic gadget, which you get to take home. solderingAt this stage, Circuit Building Sessions require a maximum of 12 students to run and the students will be supervised by 2 Engineering Outreach Mentors - student engineers currently studying at Curtin.
