We will explore the basics of electronic circuitry with a focus on giving the
student a solid foundation in electronic theory while creating and exploring
circuits hands-on. Students will be encouraged to experiment while also
learning the basic workings and simple math behind electronic components.
Some soldering experience is helpful but not necessary
Introduction to DC circuits, switches, resistors, resistors networks, series &
parallel circuits potentiometers, LEDs, reading schematics, test equipment &
connecting integrated circuits
Introduction to AC circuits, capacitors, inductors, relays, bipolar junction
transistors and diodes
More with semiconductors (Op-amps & FETs), Motors, Voltage Dividers,
More with integrated circuits, basics of repair, and introduction to digital
logic circuits, timers & oscillators
Please note, all class fees include a non-refundable enrollment deposit of $25 that will be deducted from your refund if you sign up for, then drop, a class. So, for example, if you sign up for Machine Sewing 101 and pay the $155 class fee, but then remember that you have trapeze school final exams that conflict with the Sewing class and shouldn’t have signed up after all, we will refund you $130 of your tuition payment.
