We have been trying to change how 'theory' is presented by the faculty and I had attempted to make some demos using the equipment they had. However, they felt that experiments were taking time and were unable to fit it in the schedule. They had a few doubts about the theory themselves and we were looking for solutions. One such solution was the introduction of a simulator both to them and the students.

This experiment made some simple gains:
- The questions they asked were related to design which they had not done and with a simulator we could design and iterate in a short time.
- Demos to students could be done in a shorter time by doing some amount of prep and making the schematics and testing without needing lab equipment.

Though we have had to pause all this due to the approaching examinations it may be something that can give a new twist to what we do in future.
