Demystifying Basic Electronics, Ohm's Law Edition
Wednesday, January 6, 2010 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. This week, we'll try to shed a little more light on the mathematical relationships between voltage, current, and resistance.
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.
Note for folks who attended the previous instance of this class: Yes, you're welcome at this one, too! There will be some recap over concepts previously covered, and also some new ground. Where we go will depend on who shows up, and what the experience level of the group is.
Note also: It is not necessary to print the tickets in your confirmation email. We're just using Eventbrite as a way to claim seats.
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!
