This course is for students who are interested in electricity and electronics as a hobby or career. It is a sequence course which provides a background in basic electricity/electronics fundamentals. Using computer assisted instruction, students work together to master the basics. A hands-on approach, students learn how generators, motors, robots, and lasers work. Learn how to properly use test instruments to observe, measure and repair electrical circuits. Students will also wire model walls with typical house wiring circuits. Laboratory experiments deal with energy sources, series and parallel circuits, and the basic components used in electronic systems. A portion of class time is devoted to project construction and repair techniques. During this time, students have the opportunity to build projects that may include: small robots, strobe lights, amplifiers, and other projects of interest.
