Case Study: Electrical and Electronic Engineering
This resource was created as part of the Future Morph programme from the Science Council and dates from 2010. Although historic, it is still relevant and useful today. It includes a video in which a student talks about his course in electrical and electronic engineering. He describes how one project was to make and test a circuit that included a light-sensitive resistor. A second activity describes a class experiment into the current and voltage characteristics of a semiconductor diode.
