Turning On to Electronics  
Teacher:  Edward Morin

Cost:  $296 tuition per year, paid in four $74 payments;
$75 copy/supply fee per year, paid in one $75 payment
Cost Details:  Includes toolbox, parts storage containers, bulk-purchased electronic components, high-quality breadboards and other materials for classroom projects and activities

Description: Did you know that nearly all of the benefits of modern electronics that we enjoy today were only discovered or invented in the last 150 years?  This class is a sequel to Getting Attracted to Electricity and Magnetism.  Students will learn about modern semiconductor electronics through many hands-on projects using real electronics components with the modern breadboard system; no soldering is required.  Projects are designed to teach the fundamental concepts behind diodes, LEDs, transistors, integrated circuits, digital logic, and other standard electronic components.  Classes utilize a flexible, self-paced, lab-style approach where students have many fun projects to choose from and all parts are provided.  Unfinished projects can be taken home and worked on outside of class or saved for the next class.  Students will need to be able to focus, be engaged, and be willing to follow instructions (verbal and written).  Good fine-motor skills and the ability to read small print and color codes on electronic components are also important for this class.
