This course is designed for anyone with no prior knowledge of electronics. This course is recommended for 12-17 age students; however, you can participate in the course at your own discretion. In this course, kids will be taught how to make funny and cool things by Electronic components which are parts inside a cell phone, PS, Xbox television, radio, and many other things like those. In detail, kids will explore electricity and circuits through learning basic concepts and pillars of electricity and electronics such as Voltage, Current, Conduction, Circuits & Electronics Elements. Part of what makes this course so much fun is the kids discover how electric and electronic-based devices work. The kids gain knowledge by creating amazing circuit processes, and also learn the main electrical and electronic components, such as the LED lights, Resistors, Switches, Buzzers, and simple sensors such as Temperature, Infrared sensors. They learn about these components and realize what they are, how they work, and how to develop their own circuits. They also learn to reproduce and reassemble their inanimate toys into Semi-living ones by adding electronic components to them. They apply their skills through a lot of fun and engaging weekly projects during the course and final projects.
The following topics will be covered in this course:
- Introduction to electricity and primary concepts including Voltage, Current, and Circuits
- Introduction to basic electronic components
- Meet basic circuit component
- Building circuits on a breadboard
- Fundamental circuit’s laws
- Meet simple sensors
- Learn how to work with Multimeter
- Learn how to make fun circuits
- Introduction to AC and DC Voltage/Current
