Each month Maker's Place hosts a group called Electrocraft. This group is lead my Joy Suliman and followed by woman and girls who are experts or novices in electronics. Its a great place to start but also one of the only places for female electronic engineers to share knowledge with other chicks.
At the June meetup the group had lots of new faces which was great to see. A new member brought along some fairy lights which had stopped working practically as they were taken from their box. Ade and Carla took on the challenge to fix them! After an hour or so of trouble shooting... who would have thunk it - they were repaired!
These groups happe monthly and you can subscribe to their events via Facebook
