Promoting awareness of electronics in primary school education – Opportunity

The Centre for Power Electronics and IMAPS-UK are collaborating to promote electronics in early-stage education. Following the Centre for Power Electronics Annual Conference in 2021, the organising team is dedicating some funds to the procurement of Hot Wires – Plug and Play Electronics Sets (John Adams) for distribution to primary schools (suitable for Ages 8+), in order to raise awareness of electronics and highlight the benefits of children engaging with a wide range of experiments involving the building of functioning electronics. The Hot Wires – Plug and Play Electronics Sets will also be supplied with rechargeable batteries and a solar powered charger.

If you are involved in STEM activities in primary schools and are interested in applying for one of these sets, please email the IMAPS-UK Office ( with details of the intended recipients and a short description of how you plan to actively promote electronics awareness in primary schools. Please send your request by Monday 31st January 2022. You will then be informed of whether you will receive a kit for distribution to your proposed primary school by 28th February 2022.
