From digital computers, smart mobile phones, Apple watch to many modern gadgets and intelligent robots, electronic technologies have become an indispensable part of our everyday life. In order to make informed decisions as to whether we should adopt these ever-changing electronic technologies, we have to develop a basic understanding of the principles, “substances” and cost-benefit considerations behind them. This course aims to: (i) arouse students’ general interest in science and technology, particularly with regard to current “high-tech” electronic products that they encounter everyday; and (ii) enable students to develop critical intellectual enquiries concerning existing and latest technologies they encounter in their everyday lives through lectures, discussions and hands-on experimentation. At the end of the course, students will not only be able to recognize how electronics works, but also be able to understand its social implications, as well as to develop critical thinking and to carry educated discussion about merits and common misconceptions associated with new technologies. The hands-on experiments will also allow the student to have the experience and some confidence in handling electronic components to solve a real problem using electronic technology.
