Through this professional bundle, Participants will kick off their 3 days learning journey with identifying common electronic components & basic soldering. This will then be followed by PCB (Printed Circuit Board) design, covering both designing schematics as well as PCB layout. We will be touching on embedded software development which will pair up nicely with the unique hardware created during the workshop and allow each participant to bring home not only a wealth of knowledge but a working piece of useful practical home appliances.
The First half (BEGINNER) of the workshop will focus on navigating through the popular Eagle© PCB software design tool. So as to allow our soon-to-be maker to better appreciate the PCB as well as its fabrication method, we took the extra steps and structured our workshop to guide participants in making a piece of working electronic PCB manually from scratch! (Dealing with chemicals & drilling)
In the Second half (ADVANCED) of the workshop, we will be looking into reusing Open-Source Hardware design where most of our attention will be spent on the Arduino© project. By the end of the class, participants will be constructing a fully customized Powered-up Arduino© UNO board with numerous additional peripherals.
The final PCB design in this workshop will be individually inspected and verified by an experienced in house engineer before being submitted to our fabricating partner. Let me emphasize that the final PCB will be manufactured at the same level found in most industrial grade product, thus it is of the highest quality.
Electronics experience is helpful but not required – all are welcome!

We’d love them to come, because this will inspire them as they are the pillar of the future. But we will be dealing with hardware tools as well as chemical, thus, it is ideal to limit it to one child per adult.
Yes, all participants are required to bring your own laptop (with power supply), both Windows and Mac will work.
Yes. Lunch and tea-break will be provided.
We fully understand that you may have a hectic week & you might be reluctant to drive in or send your teenager to class during the weekend. We hear you! Therefore, we have engaged actual “school bus” service to safetly go around and provide pick-up service for our participants (Limited to Penang island for now).
Please make sure to add “School Bus” pick up service add-on during package selection above.
