When I was in high school, we were taught about electronics in one of our subjects. I must admit, I enjoyed it so much; I believe I knew what HDMI switches were all about. Now I only have a vague idea about the terminologies, but those days I really had fun memorizing those terms and dabbling with our projects.
Most of my girl classmates didn't enjoy the subject, though. I guess they preferred cooking and those housekeeping stuffs. Typical, huh?! ;P
