eChip is a revolutionary system for programming PICs without flowcharts or BASIC.   It uses process blocks normally encountered in circuit diagrams.


This hands-on course will take teachers right through from the drawing board to finished electronic product using eChip as the processing component.


Although the course will be of particular interest to teachers of GCSE Systems and Control and Electronic Products because it offers a way of streamlining project work, it is also relevant to ks3 teachers of technology.
