Practical Electronics for Beginners

This is a practical, hands-on, lightweight approach to learning electronics.

Participants will use an arduino board in simple circuits and program behaviors using models in the C programming language. They will implement logical instructions that create electrical responses and subsequent visual physical responses. **This is not a comprehensive C programming class.**


1/ Simple LEDs – Digital and analog output. 2/ Programming a light sensor.

3/ Programming a motor. 4/ Potentiometers/ variable resistors

***Must bring own laptop*** Limited # of shared laptops available.

Note: Participants will have access to the SparkFun Inventors Kits during class as well as tools and test equipment. A personal Kit may be purchased on the last day for an additional cost.
