So you know how a resistor works, but how do you do something real, like make a robot move? In In-Depth Electronics, we'll cover deeper topics in detail, through a combination of discussion and hands-on experimentation. Each month we'll cover a different area in three sessions.
Learn how to remotely fire projectiles! Armed robots are best robots!
Students will learn how to build specific types of electronic circuits.
Students should already know the basics, such as resistors and capacitors, and how to use a multimeter and oscilloscope. These are taught in our Intro to Electronics class.
All class materials are provided. There is a $20 materials fee, payable to the instructor.
What to Bring:
Yourself and a desire to learn. Ideas about what you are interested in being able to build are helpful.
Charles "Mycroft" Hannum started designing electronics in the early 80s by building ham radios. He's designed consumer electronics for several companies you've heard of (and some you haven't). His first robot was a Heathkit Hero Jr., and his second is Stompy.
