Re: Never knew Dick Smith existed, back in the day ...

I teach a short introduction to electronics in my school. Uptake is not high but is pretty constant at 8-10 students per semester (total school roll of about 450). When pitching the course I stress the practical aspect especially to aspiring musicians, telling them that if they're going to play guitar they better know how to solder, not entirely true but it works. Generally we get even the most kack handed individuals up to the level of being able to solder a simple project.
