Electronics Lab

Can you imagine a world without electronics? Electronics is connected to everything we do; the way we communicate, do our work, and even order food or drive a car! Learning about electronics, and its related subjects, will help make your life easier.​

Electronics is connected to everything we do in our day-to-day-lives, from the moment we wake up to the sound of our alarm. We cannot escape it. To get around in the world these days, learning electronics can help to make your life easier. From knowing what to do when your car breaks down, to programming a light or  changing a fuse.

Electronics at Me.reka is comprised of 5 fields, which includes the Internet of Things, Embedded Systems, Machine Learning, Alternative Energy, and Creative Electronics. We conduct workshops and classes in the above fields, giving participants a hands-on and practical introduction to the Electronics.

What can you do?

What can you not do with Electronics? At the Me.reka electronics lab, you can learn programming, app development, electronic circuit design, troubleshooting, machine learning, & PCB design. You can also drop in for consultation to make their project’s happen.

If you have a dream of making something cool and functional happen, then put your electronics cap on.

Why is it important?

Whilst doing what we do, we also realise the impact the electronics industry has on the environment. From the chemicals being used in production, VOC compounds and e-waste generated. Hence, we make deliberate decisions and take conscious efforts to minimise electronic waste, and create solutions, designs and products that last. We work hard to inspire people to make things that are modular, repairable, maintainable and last for a long time.   (link to our About Us – sustainability page)

Who is it for?

Electronics is cool because the only limitation to electronics is you. We develop modules for beginners and experts wanting to know more about the field, through completing projects that interest them; such as a IOT Bedroom Light, DIY power bank or upcycled torch light.

The Electronics lab is for the novices, pros and entrepreneurs, and is accessible for anyone interested in doing their own diy projects. It is a space for you to come and design, test and validate your inventions. It is also a place for people to collaborate, brainstorm and meet like-minded people in the field. At Me.reka, we try to be sustainable by encouraging people to repair things that are already spoilt or broken and making things that are made-to-last.

Future Careers

There are many exciting careers available in the world of Electronics! We can help introduce you to the following fields: art installation artist, programmer, app developer, solar system technician, embedded system designer, and machine learning engineer.
