Core: Intro to Circuits

Instructor: Steve Graves, master maker.

I am changing the description below. This is an introduction to circuits. The assumption is that a student knows very little. The building of a circuit will be done in the next class in the series. In this class, I hope to take you from knowing very little, to feeling like you can build a circuit with a good idea of why it works.

This class builds on our Intro to Arduino class, and is a hands-on approach to basic circuits with the goal of building your first simple project using the Sparkfun Redboard Starter Kit.

Bring your own laptop. You should have a downloaded the Arduino programming environment prior to class. You can obtain it for from http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

Cost: $15 for non-members, free for members.

If you need the Red Board Kit, it is $50. Those who took our Intro to Arduino class will already have this (and once you have it, you're good to go for Intro to Arduino too).

    Thank you for your time Steve, I'm looking forward to taking the next class in this series later this year.

    NOTE: We are now moved into the new Nassau St. location near Westshore and this class will take place there.

    Hey! I already have an 'intro to circuitry' kit that is quite exhaustive as I got it from the USF EE department. (makecourse.com, under 'course materials' and 'arduino kit'). I already have a breadboard and an arduino uno, as well as plenty of capacitors and resistors. Would you still advise that I purchase the RedBoard kit?

      The bottom line is that I think that someone should be able to take this class without buying a kit.

      Ok, I will bring my kit and you can let me know if it looks good for the implementation class.
