University fairs are exciting and busy. The best way to get the most out of your time at one is to prepare in advance.

That is where I was first introduced to electronics and circuit boards. I vaguely remember that we used to assemble the LED moving light in our home, and I was always fascinated by the magic of the small integrated chip that goes into the boards.

Imagine walking along the canals in the Netherlands, the water shimmering in the sunlight and purple and yellow flowers blooming around you. There’s a windmill in the distance and the smell of something sweet in the air.
