Quote: “I’ve done ok with my coursework so far, but I want more options.”

Goals: Learn through touch to augment auditory learning; understand spatial relationships in circuits.

Frustrations: Fine detail is harder to perceive. The schematics in their class’s blog are difficult for them to figure out independently.

This includes the electronics diagrams in their Intro to Electronics course. They often need additional instructor support to understand how the diagrams work.
