Sensors help us hear what the world around us has to say.  In this class you will build circuits that measure temperature, light, and motion.  We will cover voltage and current control, and use op-amps (amplifiers) to drive LEDs and motors.  Our examples will all be analog, but the techniques are also useful for connecting sensors to microcontrollers.

Bring your own project ideas, or use ours to start.  Each session will have time to work on your project with help from instructors.  No electronics background is required.  All ages welcome; students 13 and under should be accompanied by an adult.

Please Note: This class is presented in 2 sessions, first one on July 18 and the second on July 25. Buying a ticket for session 1 covers the cost of session 2 as well.
