Getting started in basic electronics, part 1 (Thursday)

Presented by: Rob Ballenger
Time: Thursday, Jan. 11, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Please note that this is designed in such a way that you can join/drop at any time and attend the guided session or use the makerspace during open lab time. The idea behind this is to have this be a standalone class, but also a fallback for "the rule of feet".

Want to get started in electronics but don’t know where to get started? You’ll be shocked how easy it is! Get hands on experience building a few simple circuits and start yer Maker’in!

Kids 10+ welcome with adult supervision. The advanced section will cover using Arduino microcontrollers so install Pre-requisites on your laptop for the last section.

Pre-requisites: Arduino IDE (

Additional notes
Kit required. Please see eventbrite ( for tickets. Limited "free" kits are available but free kits must be returned before leaving the Makerspace.
