Event Details


Have you ever stared blankly at strangely color coded parts and wondered where to get started?  Intro to Electronics is a new rotating series that will teach you the basics: how to use some fundamental tools, how to identify and read components, and how those components are used.  We'll do this through a combination of discussion and hands-on experimentation.    This is a rotating class with different components and/or tools taught each week.  Topics may be added as the curriculum develops.

Class Goals:

Students will learn how to use the Asylum's Electronics and Robots lab tools and the basics of crucial components they need for projects.



Materials Provided:

All class materials are provided.  There is a $10 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.

Instructor Biography:

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.

Event Time:

There are three available sessions of this class:

Monday, February 10th, 7:00pm - Tool Fundamentals

Monday, February 17th, 7:00pm - Reading and Identifying Electronic Components

Monday, February 24th, 7:00pm - Putting Components To Use

REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than three days in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form.

CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.
