Course Content

  • This course is about having fun with electronics and microcontrollers!

  • The aim is to get you comfortable using a wide range of electronic components through small, simple and easy circuits
  • We will explain what an Arduino is, and a basic introduction to electronics, and what a breadboard is, and how it enables you to make simple electornic circuits without using a soldering iron.
  • Our first "experiment" will be programming the arduinio to simply flash an LED and we will progress to more complex circuits and programs.
  • You'll learn how servos, transistors, and poentiometers work, and relays work, and we will build together simple circuits and programs using these components.We will even talk about IC (Integrated Circuits) (silicon chips) and what a shift register is and you'll build  a circuit using one!
  • You'll be able to modify the program and the circuits to extend and modify the expirments
