About This Activity

This is an electronic fundamentals workshop, especially relating to low-voltage circuits meant to interface to modern digital computers. The topics cover preparatory material for "Intro to Arduino" and "Intro to Raspberry Pi". All students will have access to a breadboard, tools, and components. Paying the material fee will allow the student to take these items with them at the completion of the class. Students will construct and test simple battery-powered circuits on solderless breadboards. Specific topics include: o The nature of electrons and electron flow o Voltage vs Current o Resistance and Ohm's Law o Common components and schematic diagrams o Series and Parallel circuits o LEDs and switches o Simple integrated circuits (555 timer and logic gates) o Interfacing to Arduino/Raspberry Pi
