Join us for a "Make It! @ WPL" workshop on the Fundamentals of Electronics.  This beginners program will introduce you to the concepts of electronics, such as resistors, capacitors, switches, and measurement tools.  We will learn about Ohm’s law and how varying the voltage and/or resistance affects an LED light.  Starting with a simple circuit, we will work our way up to using a breadboard and switches to make our circuit turn on/off.  Experiments are based on the book Make: Electronics by Charles Platt.  

This program is geared to those who have no to little experience working with electronics. Ages 9 and up.

This is a 4-week program, and we would like for participants to attend all of the sessions if possible.

The program is limited to 15 participants.
