ARES = Amateur Radio, Electronics and Space.
Two clubs have been set up - one at Wellesley House school and one at River Primary school in Dover.
The Electronics will be using the Arduino starter kit from Utronix (https://www.utronix.co.uk/) with extra electronics components.
In the first week they investigated the amount of current that flows through your body. The dangers of electricity were emphasised. With the help of saliva a current of 1mA will flow but only 0.1mA flows through your body, from hand to hand. It only needs 20mA to kill you!
Then they set up a circuit with an LED and were introduced to the breadboard and push button switch.
