Description

Electronics are present in virtually every tool, appliance, or device we use today. In this course, we will explore the world of electronics from basic concepts (such as voltage, current, and power) to resistors and capacitors, electrical schematics, and microcontrollers. This course will also include hands-on projects using a digital multimeter, breadboard, microcontroller, wires, resistors, and other components. This course provides an introduction to the field of electronics and a foundation upon which to build further study and experience.

Prerequisites
Grade Levels*:

Notes and Conditions

Lab Activities: Lab exercises reinforce the concepts covered in the class and provide a hands-on learning experience with the course content. However, this course does not have sufficient lab work to fulfill the requirements of a high school “lab science.”

Reviews from Students and Parents

“Through this course I learned how many of the different components in computers or electronically powered machines work. I also learned a lot about how each individual piece works in the real world and how I could use it to build my own things.”
