These publications have been produced as part of the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP). TEP materials do not prescribe what should be taught, or how. TEP has absolute confidence in the professional judgement of teachers to selectively copy or edit the materials as they believe appropriate. These resources are freely photocopiable for teachers to use in their classroom. Each book in this collection contains project outlines or narratives which follow a similar structure:
- overall subject content
- design brief
- design constraints
- guide to design and manufacturing
These project elements are in the hands of the teacher who might, for example, want to set a very specific content, an alternative design brief, or limit (or widen) the resources available.
This textbook from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP) is intended to introduce students to making electronic devices and systems. It looks at important electronic components and how they can be put together to perform useful tasks. How to design and make electronic circuits is aided by descriptions of how...
