Now is a great time to start picking up a new hobby.
As we enter June, many of us are still working, learning and existing solely from home. It isn't easy - we know this - and we can't wait to safely get back outside and back to our communities.
Something that has really helped us here at SparkFun is picking up new hobbies or projects. One of the most popular questions we get from people who visit our site is where the best place to start is. We will typically recommend some of our beginner soldering kits or our SparkFun Inventor's Kit to begin learning how to code, but one of our most valuable hubs of information is our Engineering Essentials page!
Electrical engineering is a technical discipline concerned with the study, design and application of electricity! Through electrical engineering, we can design devices and systems using electrical components such as resistors, capacitors, transistors, etc. Electrical Engineers can design and work on items such as super low-power microcontrollers, PCB design, high-power turbines, navigation systems, and more!
If you've ever been interested in learning electronics as a hobby in one way or another, our Engineering Essentials page is a great tool to utilize!
