Electricity makes most of the things around us move, play, and light up, but do you know how it works? In this course you will harness the power of electronics. Combine the science and skills of electronics with creativity as you create your own electronic projects. Students will learn how circuits work, will investigate several types of sensors (touch, mechanical, light) and actuators (motors, lights, speakers), and will put it all together in a final project.
