About the instructor:

My name is Nicky Rosenberg and I am looking forward to being your instructor for this electronics workshop.

This workshop is part of a series I teach which will provide the necessary skills to take your own ideas to the next level to design, build and create electronic circuits, computers, programming, robotics and even art creations.

I am an entrepreneur and inventor. My educational background is in Electronic Engineering (BSC) and I spent many years developing electronic circuits and prototyping. I like not only designing, but mostly hands-on projects which integrate electronics, mechanics and other fields.

I’ve taught Computer Communication in College, had an IT company for 5 years, and developed electronics projects since I was in high school, even built my own computer when it was too expensive for me to buy one.  

You might say it has been, and still is, my hobby for a very long time. Some people play the piano, some play a sport, and I enjoy learning and developing new electronic products. On a personal note, some of my hobbies include mountain biking, camping and music.

I am looking forward to the experience and challenge of teaching and learning with you. Let’s work together to ensure a positive outcome and have fun.
