ECS Outreach

Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) has been at the forefront of leading-edge technology for more than 60 years with a global reputation for web science, nanotechnology, energy harvesting, wireless communications and much more. To help nurture the next generation of scientists and inspire young people to think about a career in electronics and electrical engineering, computer science and IT, we aim to introduce them to the subject matter in a relevant and engaging way early in their academic life.

Activities offered:

* 'Smart watch is not magic': using a sensor to create a Motion Detector and later develop it into a Heart Beat Sensor, similar to the ones you have in your Smart Watch!
* Robotics with our student robotics group
* Advanced Microbits
* Bespoke sessions and lectures
* Cyber Security Challenges
* Biomedical Electronics
