Introduction to Electronics @ the Hack Factory
Saturday, April 17, 2010 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (CDT)
Twin Cities Maker is pleased to offer our first electronics course.
This class is intended as a ground-floor introduction to electronics:
- Units: amps, volts, ohms, watts, and the relationships between them
- Components: batteries, switches, and resistors
- Tools: breadboarding and using a multimeter
Expect the class to run about two hours, with about half of that being hands-on. After all the topics and exercises have been covered, students will have an opportunity to ask any questions they may have about electronics or electricity.
Attendees will get the most out of the class by purchasing the accompanying parts kit. These kits will include not only all the parts needed for the exercises in this class but the exercises in upcoming introductory classes, as well as an assortment that will allow you to explore a great number of projects on your own.
TCMaker members will receive a class discount in the form of a $5 credit against their next month's dues.
Class registration is limited to 8 people, to ensure quality instruction.
About the instructor: Mike Hord is an electrical engineer by trade with five years of experience.
