Training, workshops and tuition for pupils and teachers in the use and further understanding of our products, electronics and science and technology. Practical hands on experiments, purpose build software programs and computer presentations greatly assist in the transferring of knowledge for a given topic.
Section 1: Introduction
People learn by doing and to encourage interest and increase comprehension greatly assist in successful training.
An electrical measuring instrument is generally an electronic device that is very effective and accurate in measuring electrical quantities and allow the user to gain knowledge of the insights of an electrical circuit and how different components behave and function when electrical power is applied to an electrical circuit.
An electrical measuring instrument:
- Provide the user with the ability to perform fault-finding tasks on an electrical circuit when the electrical power is applied.
- Provide the user with the ability to interpret the result of an analogue signal or a digital signal processed by an electrical circuit.
- Provide the user with the ability to measure the value of a component out of circuit.
- Provide the user with the ability to measure a voltage drop over a component in circuit or to measure the current that flow through a component in circuit.
- Provide the user with the ability to take measurements on a continues basis.
A basic knowledge is needed to correctly and safely operate and maintain an electrical measuring instrument. An electrical measuring instrument may range from a basic, small in size, easy to understand, lightweight, battery powered, handheld device for example a multimeter, to a heavier bench type or cabinet fitted spectrum analyzer or an oscilloscope.

Section 3: Training, Workshops and Tuition
|Draw upon your imaginative creativity ! Design and bend your very own wire figure ! Have creative fun and bend a figure in 2D or 3D. Learn series and parallel circuits and connect different output components. Demonstrate your ingenuity at a local fair and see who can carefully move the looped wire over the whole length of wire pattern that you have just bend and created ! It may take concentration of a very high standard !!|
|Loads of fun with assembling electric motor kits. One of the most used and best known phenomenon known today the world over is magnetism ! From engineered trains like the Maglev levitating in midair, to creating your very own electromagnet, magnetism is and stay a great way to stimulate the mind !|
|The quantity and variety of electronic components available today on the global market is mind boggling, but amasingly fascinating ! Take part in this fascinating world of discoveries as we learn, discuss, use and implement different components in different configurations !|
|Make use of a variety of electronic components and explore the usefulness and fun of electronic circuits ! Construct, build, measure your electronic circuit, series / parallel, from mechanical movement to audible sound, electronic circuits create fun for everyone !|
|Perform interesting experiments with static electricity ! Eighteen-century scientists in electricity determined that a potential difference must exist for electricity to flow and that charges of the same polarity (positive-positive or negative-negative) push each other away and charges of the opposite polarity (positive-negative or negative-positive) attract each other ! Use the tribo-electric series, construct an electroscope, see how an electrostatic motor spin in concentric movement around it's own shaft, etc. !|
|The fun and explorative world of robotics and process control ! Build your very own robot, give your robot a name and have your robot explore it's surroundings, send your robot on a mission, collect samples or collect data, upgrade your robot with mechanical parts, power pack, processing power or number crunching software, in the future investigate the science of artificial intelligence or investigate the science of virtual reality and how to combine these with robotics and process control ! Process control may be described as a combination of an electrical and mechanical system that is capable of performing a series of actions automatically, generally found in an industrial manufacturing plant. Happy exploration on land, water, air !|
|From the eighteen-century, scientists were astonish by the discovery of electricity and busied themselves with various electrical experiments ! Get those electrons flowing and pumping ! Make use of a dynamo powered by wind, waves, tidal, steam, hydro, or solar panel or heat engine / thermal engine (steam engine, gas turbine, internal combustion engine) and generate electricity for your electronic circuit, power traffic lights, street lights, etc. Convert the alternating current (ac) provided by your dynamo into direct current (dc) for the use in your electronic circuitry ! Download Windows® based software on the topic of alternating current and direct current: AC Software.|
|From catalyst to molecule the amazing world of chemistry has played a major role in everyday life ! Fascinating NITROGEN experiments with a balloon prove Boyle's law, lighted incandescent globe prove no oxygen to be found in nitrogen, freeze a banana and leave as hard as rock, produce a white smoke like plume of water vapor into the air, make ice cream the NITROGEN way !|
|Electrolysis is a combination of a chemical and electrical process where electricity conduct through a solution or a molten substance ! Create a lemon cell or battery and power a light emitting diode ! Light a low voltage bulb where part of the conductor is a liquid in the form of a diluted solution, water and table salt, described as an electrolyte ! Most salts, most acids, most bases form electrolyte ! Electroplating with a metal, for example copper, is another form of electrolysis ! Enjoy plenty more electrolysis experiments !|
|From an electrical incandescent lamp (an electric light glowing with a hot filament) innovated by Thomas Edison to today's modern electrical power grid designed and calculated by Nikola Tesla, electricity form an integral part of modern society. The safety aspect of alternating current is very important !|
Section 4: Informative Talks and Presentations
|Science experiments with liquid nitrogen.|
|Science experiments with static electricity.|
Electricity is a fascinating invention used globally. Safety in electricity, especially mains alternating current (AC) is of utmost importance. Single-phase alternating current is supplied to human residences and three-phase alternating current is generally supplied to industrial areas.
It is interesting to note that electricity cannot be heard or seen, only the result of an electrical shock may be felt. Where mains electricity is involved it is best to plan first, before work commence !
" Mains alternating current is not your friend, we don't play with mains electricity " Markus
