This course will take you from not knowing what a volt is to building circuits to control lights, sounds, and movement (without a microcontroller). We’ll teach you about different electronic components and you’ll build circuits that fit them together.

We’ll teach you how to examine what your circuits are doing with a multimeter and a basic Arduino-based oscilloscope. And we’ll teach you what those words mean. Plus, you get to keep all the tools and components!

Do you know what an operational amplifier is? No? You will after twelve two-hour classes taught once a week. Resistors! Diodes! Logic gates! Datasheets! We’ll give you the foundation to tackle cool new projects and to continue on to bigger and better things.

All classes meet on Sundays from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. Please note, one class on March 23 will meet from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.

Your Instructors:

Cole Wiley is a sculptor and computer scientist with experience in software development, web development, sculpture, digital art, interactive installations, computer vision, 3d modeling, rapid prototyping, and a couple other things. His favorite language at the moment is CoffeeScript. He enjoys a double espresso in the morning, and a rye whiskey neat in the evening.

Michael Cousins is a mechatronics engineer and coffee enthusiast. He got himself a 3D printer in college and never really looked back. He’s worked designing and building plastic injection molded parts, circuit boards, and robots. The robots only occasionally try to hurt him; that’s why we make him wear safety goggles.
