Have you been tantalized by cool costumes & projects using LEDs, Arduinos, or EL-wire? Ever wondered what’s going on inside your computer, television, or vacuum cleaner?
Electricity permeates our modern existence, and learning your way around circuits is the first step in demystifying it.
In this class, we’ll start with the very basics, teaching you about the basic properties of electricity, how a battery works, and show you how we interact with these forces on a daily basis. We will identify common circuit components, use tools like multimeters and breadboards, read schematics and datasheets, and describe what’s going on with a few equations. You’ll build some simple circuits and go home with a mini-breadboard so you can tackle your own projects!
