Every budding inventor and curious mind is on a journey to better understand how the world works around them. They are constantly imaging and reimaging ways to make life better, efficient or maybe more interesting. Modern projects tend to be focused on automation, which is difficult to understand unless you’ve done an Engineering degree.
In this course you will gain a basic knowledge to start your journey in automation and develop ideas for your own projects. You will discover the theory of electronics, electronic circuits and micro controllers.
Upon completing this course, you ought to be able to appreciate basic electronic components and circuit development. Theory aspects will be solidly linked to hands-on application of these concepts. Together we will put these into practice on some beginner level projects such as light modulation and basic motor control.
Note: All computer courses are run in the school computer labs and you are required to use the school desktops for the duration of the course (you are not able to use your own laptop). Some of the courses may require you to login onto the network.
