For the Electronics Tips and Tricks Challenge we are looking for all of your favorite electronics skills and helpful hints. These tips don't need to be extremely technical or highly advanced. Rather, we are looking for projects that will help others learn electronics. Slow down and take the time to think about how you would best explain complicated electronics principles and techniques to beginners. The best tips and tricks Instructables will be in the running to win oscilloscopes and other electronics equipment.

There is also a special oscilloscope Judges Prize for the best circuit simulation created using Tinkercad Circuits.

The Electronics Tips & Tricks Challenge is closed.
