NTU - Soft CircuitsThe Nottingham Post were interested with our work and partnership between ourselves and Nottingham Trent University's School of Education. We've been introducing e-textiles to undergraduate and postgraduate students at Nottingham Trent University. The students are training to become Design Technology teachers including the postgraduate Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course that we visited recently and viewed their new e-textiles project: the GloSport.

UK ManufactureHere at Kitronik, we are very proud to be one of Nottingham's rapidly-growing companies who are championing British manufacturing as we design and manufacture all of our kits right here in Nottingham. We have been particularly impressed with the expansion of the Maker community in recent years as our kits provide a perfect introduction to electronics as we produce a range of kits from complete beginners to advanced degree project kits. Our most popular kit to date is our Mono Amplifier Kit which provides schools and hobbyists a good introduction to electronics with the added benefit of being good value for money and within constrained school budgets.
BBC micro:bitWe are one of 26 partners who are providing support and materials for the launch of the BBC micro:bit, a programmable pocket-sized computer that is to be given to every Year 7 student to encourage them to code. You can see the full article here covering our progress so far including interviews with both of Kitronik's founders: Kevin Spurr and Geoff Hampson.
