Introduction to FemEng LabFollow article
I am Natalia, the Technical Convenor of FemEng.
FemEng is a student-led society at the University of Glasgow with the aim of empowering women in engineering and actively breaking down the gender barrier. The society has a number of focuses including outreach work with schools, networking events with industry professionals, social activities, soft and technical skill workshops, and international collaborations.
As an engineering society that promotes equality, inclusivity, and diversity, we decided to create a workshop for people without any experience in electronics to get ready for their first electronics laboratory.
We know how scary it can be the first time you see an oscilloscope and have no idea how to use it! Therefore we decided to create a series of videos for all freshers and older students to gain confidence and be better prepared for their first electronics lab. In this series, we will give a brief introduction to some of the materials and equipment you will be using during your university degree.
Our first video is just a wee introduction to kick off the series!
Next week’s video will be about Breadboards. I will show you what they look like, what breadboards are used for, and of course how to use them!
We are releasing a new video every Monday!
We hope you enjoy this series and end up feeling more confident in your ability to handle electronics!
