Do you have a child that is full of wacky inventions and ideas? Or perhaps simply keen to understand how things work?
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. There is a Certificate  for each student  that completes the full 12 months Course.

Join the adventure..... into the magical world of electronics.

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 per spell). 

Each package contains everything to make two or three fantastic electronics projects.  This includes components such as solar cells, meter, speaker, chips, circuit boards, wire and solder,Motors. Transistors and much more..... There are over 125 different parts! many are repeated making over 220 items, and 135 pages of fun instructions.

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!

What else? Make a radio transmitter, oscillators, LED flashers and sound generators.  You'll be doing simple computer programming, learning how to solder, using magnets, motors and power switching. You'll get to grips with the graphs, charting, technical drawing and calculations you need.  Learn about early inventions, alternative energies.  Understand just what volts, amps, watts, resistors and capacitors are all about.

No previous experience is needed. 

Students of 11 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 11's...  :o)

The next start date is 20th SEPTEMBER 2017....

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.
