Teachers today are facing a difficult problem with far-reaching consequences for all levels of education. One of the world’s most required skillsets is not only difficult to teach, but conceptually difficult and hard to develop a passion for. With FELTRONICS, electronics theory and design can be presented to any age with hands-on experimentation rewarded with instant feedback from a completed circuit.
Large-scale discrete components are marked with IEEE standard graphics, and mounted to easy-to-manipulate felt bases. Magnets on every trace end of each part make for easy circuit completion. The benefits of this approach are many, among them familiarization with component function, basic circuit-design skills, and above-all, engaging low cost education in one of the world’s most necessary skills.
