Demystifying Basic Electronics, Hands-On!
Wednesday, December 16, 2009 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
This class is for folks who've never lit an LED, never used a voltmeter, or never held a soldering iron. It's capped at ten people, because after just a few minutes of theory, we'll be going hands-on! We'll play with batteries, resistors, LEDs, and stuff. Maybe transistors and relays, time permitting.
You won't emerge with a degree in EE, but you should have a more solid understanding of how electrical current works, how we control it, and how simple building blocks can make more advanced circuits.
If you have access to a multimeter, please bring it along. We have several at the shop but not one per person, which would be ideal.
When & Where
i3 Detroit is a DIY collective in Ferndale, with tools and resources to facilitate a wide variety of projects. The name stands for "Imagine, Innovate, and Inspire".
Supported by its members but open to guests as well, i3 Detroit's facility hosts workshops and classes as often as possible. Led by volunteer instructors (mostly members), these are usually free, but may require a materials fee for participation.
When there's no class happening (and sometimes when there is!), you'll usually find members in the space, soldering, sewing, welding, sculpting, programming, woodworking, or just hanging out.
Founded in 2009, i3 Detroit has about 70 members and funds its operation mostly through member dues. Donations from students and guests are always appreciated, and have the potential to substantially increase our resources!
