Jeff Dunnihoo is an electrical engineer with over a dozen patents, papers, and textbooks on semiconductor and system development. Jeff's SOIC and Friends children's book series introduces kids, parents, and teachers to what's under the hood in their high-tech laptops, tablets, and smartphones.


Technology and STEM: HOW do you want to live when you grow up?

Ask yourself HOW you want to live while you grow up, not the old “WHAT do you want TO BE." Kids are being driven toward robot competitions and 'learning to code' when there are myriad careers available in tech beyond just the mythical rockstar coder and lead designer/inventor. Success takes teams, trials and time.

Smartphones and Computers! How are they made?!

We take a look underneath the glass and plastic of tablets and laptops into the world of SOIC and Friends. We will look at actual circuit boards and semiconductor chips and how they are assembled into the tools and toys your use every day.
