For even the most seasoned programmers, hardware can still remain something of a mystery. We have seen many organizations, such as a wildlife camera building kit, offer accessible ways for children to learn these new skills, and now, looking to do the same of adults, Tron-Club offers a monthly subscription service for circuit building kits, which get more challenging each time.
Each month, Tron-Club will send users a kit — including parts such as breadboards and LEDs — with instructions to build unique circuits. They start simple, and become more complicated and difficult as users’ skills develop. The aim is to help learners grasp the functions of different electronic parts, and eventually be able to apply them to robotics, home automation, and more. The team also offers quick response — usually with a video — via their social sites.
The subscription costs GBP 11 a month, or GBP 120 a year. What are some other essential skills in today’s world that adults and children alike should be nurturing?
