Help your child get a good grounding with 'The Electronic Wizards Apprenticeship'.
The Electronic Wizard's Apprenticeship is a fantastic inspirational one year Postal Course, split into three 'spells' (terms) of four months each.
The Course is very practical and hands on.Wizards’ Apprentices start with the basics, and rapidly build to more advanced skills. Get an insight into the workings behind technology. Understand some of the ‘Magic’ that holds our modern world together
Every month you get a mystery 'Wonder Box' in the post (four
Each package contains everything to make two or three fantastic electronics projects. This includes components such as solar cells, batteries, meter, speaker, chips, circuit boards, wire and solder.
The instructions are fun and chatty with illustrations and no jargon. There's also a regular quiz and sometimes a CD or DVD: everything for your exciting journey.
These are not simple click together kits that teach you nothing. This is active learning!
For example find out what a transistor is, what it does and how you can use it in a circuit. Begin to understand what all the parts of a circuit are and make your own!
No previous experience is needed.
Students of 10 or older can easily follow the course. Younger students are also welcome. However they will need more practical help. This will mean that parents will have to take more of an active role and will have to go through the course helping all of the time. Without that extra parent help the younger Apprentice may fall behind and lose interest, so double effort from parents please for under 10's... :o)
Please apply at least 10 days before the Spell Date.......Preferably book as early as possible!...... It takes a lot to organise your WonderBoxes!....... but if you are late booking in...... get in contact as we often have extra WonderBoxes ready made up.
A 15/30 watt soldering iron is essential. (Adult supervision will sometimes be required) If you need one, this can be purchased from us including some solder for £12 including post.
Each Apprentice is given a unique 'Apprentice Name' so you can log into the private forum on this website (ONLY accessible to apprentices and their parents). You can ask questions, and see what others have posted. If you are really stuck, the Wizard will help you find a solution.
If you get stuck and need a bit of help, check out the Forum on the website first..... and then if you are still stuck on a project ...e-mail the Wizard to arrange a free half hour one to one Skype session to get you going again.
There are ALSO extra tuition Skype sessions, details are on the payments page.
