2023 Summer Program

Learn about the basics of electronics: the interactions between batteries, resistors, transistors, capacitors, and other components. Build skill in soldering, and discover how to turn schematic diagrams into real circuits. Learn about electrical safety and why batteries don't shock you. Explore the concept of digital logic, and how ones and zeros can be combined to control circuits.

By the end of the week, create your own re-configurable robot. Carry out different tasks, such as searching out a light source or avoiding walls, all without a single line of code.
