A new elective was introduced this academic year for Year 9 and 10 students to give them hands on experience of programming microcontrollers and building interesting circuits. Each student was given an arduino kit https://www.arduino.cc/ to work with. Students programmed in C/C++ and built a variety of circuits such as humidity sensors, light sensors, fans, eclectic displays using LEDs, to name a few. It is a great option for students who want to have a shot at programming and/or experience what the world of electronics engineering or software programming would be like.
