Introducing binary numbers, why we use binary, microcontrollers, understanding circuits and breadboard prototyping
We will start with a schematic showing how to make a clock/counter. We'll cover the major electronics components used in most projects, what they do, when to use them and how to program and use a microcontroller.
At the end of this session, attendees should be able to understand a circuit diagram and use it to create a working electronic circuit. Everyone gets a working project to take home!
This session is a perfect introduction to electronics and microcontrollers and requires no previous experience or soldering. All tools and component kits are provided.
When & Where
Build Brighton Makerspace
Build Brighton is a communal workshop and collective of over 100 makers who love to build stuff.
We’re part of a global network of makerspaces – places where people do creative projects, such as electronics, 3D printing, crafts and woodworking. Our main purpose is to provide tools and a space in which our members can gather, collaborate and learn from each other. People beaver away on their own projects, or take part in exciting group projects in a playful and friendly environment.
We are a not-for-profit community run entirely by volunteers. Our members pay a monthly subscription that goes towards paying for the workshop space and equipment for the group.
