Electronics in Meccano Hands-On! gives you the chance to have a go at building your own electronic circuit with guidance from the Electronics in Meccano team.
The sessions consist of a half-hour lecture introducing you to some electronics concepts, the 555 timer IC, and the practical aspects of constructing your circuits. After the lecture you will be able to build your own 555 Monostable Circuit on a printed circuit board, thereby learning how to solder and identify components.
Here you’ll find information about some of Tim’s endeavours in the fields of engineering and computing.
