Welcome to the Kitronik University. We've written lots of guides on topics ranging from understanding electronic principles, practical demonstrations around soldering, e-textiles resources and much more. We've split things into three topics called Learning, Teaching and Making in order to help you quickly find the course you need.
Whether you're looking for help understanding the world of electronics or practical help with skills we have just the resource for you.
These resources aim to assist in explaining the technical side of electronics in an easy to understand manner. There are explanations on components, resistor values, capacitor values and so on. They are great for beginners and make good support material for teachers. Get learning now
The interactive learn & test zone contains presentations on a topic along with a multiple choice test to check your understanding. Topics include: resistor and capacitor values, circuit symbols, ohms law and so on. Check out this great revision aid here
These resources teach you the skills needed to work with electronics and include topics such as soldering, and more. Click here to start learning
Find out which of our materials can be worked with in which ways in our handy working with materials section. Get making here
Our resources for secondary school teachers are second to none. In this section you'll find out what to expect when purchasing a high quality project kit from Kitronik as well as all of our teaching note for all of our kits. If you're unsure which kit you need our kit selector can help.
Looking for inspiration? Check out our tutorials sections.
The electronics tutorials page contains student and hobbyist friendly projects giving detailed explanation on how they can be built. These include: a dimmer light, various light / heat switched applications, a 7 segment dice using logic gates and much more. Click here to get making.
This Kitronik University resource is for anyone interested in E-Textiles and wearables. For those who don't know what electronic textiles are we cover all of the basics including elementary circuit design, and basic do's and don'ts when using conductive thread. If you're looking for something more advanced we have a range of tutorials for many of our Electro-Fashion components including our Igloo, PICAXE wearable module. Click here to get sewing
