LEDs, LEDs... (6yr-12yr old)

Robotics starts with the basic understanding of electronics components.

In this series of classes you and your child will learn about the basic components such as: LEDs, resistors, capacitors, timers and infra-red devices through fun and engaging projects. Armed with this knowledge you will be able to move towards programing simple robots using the Arduino platform (later in the advanced track). You will also create your own circuit boards later on and learn to solder components on your circuit board.

This class: Introduction to prototyping, LEDs and resistors.

LEDs are fun to play with. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors. In this class, learn how to prototype basic circuits on a breadboard using LEDs, resistors and switches. While basic, it is fundamental to learn some of the details and implementations of LEDs.

The fee: The class is $20/student ($5 off for siblings). The fees are collected by Kids 2.0 Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to educate kids about technology. All amounts are re-invested to prepare new classes and fun projects.

Age range: 6yr - 10yr. No prior experience required.

Parking: Free 2 hours parking can be found along H St. Follow us on Facebook for the latest news about upcoming projects and ideas: https://www.facebook.com/SacramentoElectronicsForKids

    Enjoyed the class, too a lot of notes for my son and I to study together. Stephane and Nicholas were very personable and supportive throughout the learning process. We really look forward to the next meetup:-)

    I'm hoping this will be really good for my 6 yr old who has been begging for anything to do with the physical sciences or electronics. Thank you for offering it.

    My kids and I were so looking forward to this class starting but now I've got a scheduling conflict I cannot change. Hopefully we'll be able to join in next round.

    Hi, I would love to sign my 9 year old up for this class. If my husband stays with him, do I pay for 1 or 2 people?

      Hi Samantha, the fee is only for the kids to cover the materials. You only pay for 1 in this case. Thank you.
