With Matt Waldner
Ages 15 and up, unless prior instructor approval is given.
About the Class:
You may be familiar with an Arduino or a Raspberry Pi, but what do you do when you put your project together and things don't work right? If everything worked right the first time, you'd never learn anything.
This workshop will give you hands-on experience troubleshooting some common electronics project problems using oscilloscopes, multimeters, LCR meters and other devices.
Come troubleshoot with us!
Skills you should have to take this class:
While you don't need to have a lot of experience with electronics, this class is designed for people who have at least tried to experiment a little on their own - even if they have failed. :).
You should know what electronics components like resistors and capacitors are, and understand the difference between voltage and current.
If you would like to come in and work on projects outside of class, you must be a member.

A paid membership doesn't automatically guarantee you'll just get to come and use all our tools. First and foremost, we need to make sure you can demonstrate that you know how to safely use them. We don't want you to injur yourself or anyone else, and also proper training helps prevent damage to our tools.
Not all classes are free for members, but they are always at least discounted. Why is this? Our instructors are experts; some choose to volunteer their time, and some need to earn money for sharing their knowledge and experience because this is how they make their living.
