EEE101: Soldering and Basic Electronics

Rewritten from the ground up, in this course you will learn the fundamental concepts of electrical engineering, including both signal flow and simple circuit analysis.

You will experiment with breadboards -- the electrical engineer's best friend -- and standard components (including batteries, resistors, buttons, and LEDs), and then build several circuits. Finally, you will learn the basics of soldering and assemble a permanent first prototype of your circuit on a custom printed circuit board!

EEE302: Advanced Arduino: Sensors

This class explores more ways of making your Arduino alert to the world around it. You'll try out many new sensors, building up from the simplest digital sensors that behave like buttons, up to rich sensors like range-finders and accelerometers. This class assumes you are a proficient circuit builder and Arduino code writer. If you've taken Arduino Wiring: EEE201 and Arduino Fundamentals: EEE202, you are absolutely ready for this class. If not, you should be able to follow simple schematics to wire up a circuit, practice finding and correcting common wiring mistakes, and be able to modify existing programs or write simple programs from scratch.

Note: This class includes a package of basic sensors, lights, and motors that will be used in the lesson. If you are signing up for this class using an Unlimited Class Pass or Maker SBU Pass, you will need to pay the $30 materials fee before class.

EEE303: Advanced Arduino: High Voltage and Motors

Your Arduino is limited in how much power it can deliver to each thing plugged into it. You’ll learn several ways to overcome this limitation, allowing the Arduino to control high power devices. You’ll learn to control several kinds of motors, from the quick linear solenoids to simple DC motors to the precise stepper motors used in 3D printers and other CNC machines.

This class assumes you've taken Arduino Wiring: EEE201 and Arduino Fundamentals: EEE202. Before taking this class. you should be able to follow simple schematics to wire up a circuit, practice finding and correcting common wiring mistakes, be able to modify existing programs, and write simple programs from scratch.

Note: This class includes a package of basic sensors, lights, and motors that will be used in the lesson. If you are signing up for this class using an Unlimited Class Pass or Maker SBU Pass, you will need to pay the $20 materials fee before class.
