Electricity and Electronics I
This course is an introduction to electricity/electronicsdesigned for students interested in learning how electricity can be safe and exciting. Students learn about electronic componentsand how they are used to design and assemble light and sound controlledcircuits.
Students will then construct a continuitytester, color organ, and alien attack game which will enhance studentsunderstanding of electronic design. Soldering wires, solid state components,using digital meters, and operating power supplies for testing circuits arejust a few of the hands-on activities in this course. How electricity is usedin the home will be explored through residential wiring, electrical planning,and concepts of the digital home. S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) concepts will beaddressed throughout the course.
