Where we are today possibly has more to do with one thing, Electronics, than any other physical thing in the world.

Your mobile phone, television, car, telephone and radio, to name but a few, all operate due to electronics. These small items that work on electricity control a huge amount of our daily lives; but what do we know about them ? Very little I'm guessing unless you have studied them before. Take some time to wander through your house and think about what you have that uses Electronics, you might be surprised as we tend to take them for granted !
