While it may seem intimidating at first, learning electronics is fun and easy.
In the first three lessons I introduce new tools, skills and concepts. In the remainder of the class, a new electronic component is introduced in each lesson.
In addition to providing an overview of an important aspect of electronics, each lesson concludes with a project. This allows you to learn about basic electronics in a hands-on manner.
I hope you will take the time and come build a circuit with me.
Whether you have a project in mind, or simply wanted to learn but didn’t know where to start, getting into electronics is much easier than you may think. You don’t even need a degree in electrical engineering to figure this out – I don’t! While it may seem foreign and intimidating at first, anyone can do it.
Throughout this class, we are going to cover electronics from the fundamentals of electricity all the way through to microchips. At each stage you will build a project, and begin to grasp these concepts in a hands-on practical way.
Electronics is the science and technology concerned with regulating flow of electrical current. Put simply, it lets you move electrons around. While this may seem like not that big of a deal, the regulation of electrons has enabled some of the most important innovations of the last century including computers, televisions, rocketships, electric cars, rocketships, video games, smartphones, Tickle-Me-Elmo, hoverboards (both those that really hover and those that do not), and – of course – rocketships.
