While it may seem intimidating at first, learning electronics is fun and easy.
In the first three lessons I introduce new tools, skills and concepts. In the remainder of the class, a new electronic component is introduced in each lesson.
In addition to providing an overview of an important aspect of electronics, each lesson concludes with a project. This allows you to learn about basic electronics in a hands-on manner.
I hope you will take the time and come build a circuit with me.
