An In-depth Introduction to DC Basics – Everything you need to know to be able to understand and discuss fundamental concepts of electricity and electronics.
This workshop will get you up to speed on both terminology and understanding of electricity and electronics through experimentation and hands-on activities. You’ll be seeing, touching and working with the things that we explain. We will cover Electricity and Analogies, Current, Voltage, Power, Ground, Resistance, Ohms Law, Circuits, Schematics, Series and Parallel Circuits, DC Battery, Breadboard, Wire, Switches, Resistors and LED, as well as a brief description of Arduino (which will include installing the software and exploring the IDE), and lots of examples. Soldering will also be covered. This is a beginner-friendly level workshop. This workshop is hands-on, no boring theory lessons! We will supply the necessary components.
(everyone who is enrolled in Arduino (both series) and Wearables is encouraged to take this class, especially if they have no previous electronics experience)
Cost: $55 Class + $20 materials fee – includes breadboard, LEDs, batteries, jumper wires, and all components
