ECS Summer School 201531st October 2014
Do you enjoy maths, technology or science?
The 2014 Electronics Summer School at Southampton
For the second year running, I am organising a one-week residential course (27th - 31st July 2015) to enable 16 and 17 year-old students to apply their skills to computer science and electronic engineering, working in groups and investigating and designing solutions to real projects in our undergraduate labs. As well as experiencing the facilities on campus, and taking part in labs and lectures, they will be living in halls and enjoying a busy programme on the University of Southampton campus.
I am leading the course with Dr Reena Pau, ECS Outreach Coordinator. To be eligble for the course, students should be aged 16+ when the course begins; studying maths and one of Physics, Electronics, Computing or Further Maths at A-level; and have mostly A/A* grades at GCSE.
