This class will focus on the fundamentals of electronics and how we can use our understanding of electronics to build internet-connected systems that measure and/or interact with the environment around us. Students will learn the fundamentals of electronics and circuits and hardware/software programming, and then apply that knowledge to group and individual projects, such as building a weather station, a vending machine, or a power monitoring system.
