New Class: Intro to Sensors July 18 & 25

Buttons are a type of motion sensor

Sensors help us hear what the world around us has to say.  In this class you will build circuits that measure temperature, light, and motion.  We will cover voltage and current control, and use op-amps (amplifiers) to drive LEDs and motors.  Our examples will all be analog, but the techniques are also useful for connecting sensors to microcontrollers.

Bring your own project ideas, or use ours to start.  Each session will have time to work on your project with help from instructors.  No electronics background is required.  All ages welcome; students 13 and under should be accompanied by an adult.

Class fee is $60 and covers 2 2-hour sessions from 6-8 pm.
