Tinker with electronics while learning the basics of computer programming. We begin by experimenting with the fundamentals of electronics and circuitry, and step up to projects where our class of young makers will design their own interactive and programmable devices. Participants use Arduino microcontroller boards to build interactive devices and learn about computers and coding. We will experiment with LEDs, resistors, motors, and sensors. Each class day gives participants the chance to design a hands-on project with the guidance of skilled Circuit Lab instructors.
Students need a PC or Mac (no Chromebooks, iPads, etc.) to run the software for Hands-On Electronics.
This class requires you to rent materials needed for the class. The cost of the rental is $70 and is refundable after the return of the kit in good condition. The kit will need to picked up from the Parks and Recreation office prior to the first day of class. We will notify you when they are available for pick up. When picking up the kit, please bring a check for $70 made out to Circuit Lab.
For our online class, you will be sent a link for the zoom meeting.
