GEORGE EDUCATION ELECTRONICS
ENGINEERING & COMPUTER SOCIETY
George Educational Electronics Engineering and Computer Society, G3ECS for short, is a group of young and not so young geeks getting together to apply our motto "Learn, Make, Return" once a week.
The initiative is run as a non-profit, with the hope of inspiring more people to join the electronics and computer industry.
We question the status quo and focus on how and why things work instead of accepting that the simply do or don't.
Our country is faced with a skills shortage, especially skill sin science and technology. By stimulating young minds and taking the fear of numbers and electricity away, we're fostering the next generation of entrepreneurs that will choose to be technology producers instead of consumers.
The children who attend learn valuable life skills from interacting with people of different age groups and backgrounds, through to learning leaderships skills and public speaking in a open and collaborative environment.
We encourage parents to join their children at the club and get involved.
