Electronics 11/12

*** Under Construction for Semester 2 ***

Electronics 11/12 is about furthering a students knowledge in the understanding of the world of electricity and electronics. Students will learn, in greater detail than in Grade 9/10, about the different components that are used in electronics devices and build quality projects.  CODING is part of the course as students will use Arduino for most circuits they work with.  The use of 3D software, 3D printers and a Laser Cutter will be used to develop cases for the projects students make to enclose the circuit boards they develop using computer software.  In addition students will learn the correct use of test equipment.  An introduction to Electrical will also be apart of the course where students will learn 110v wiring of switches, receptacles, lights, breaker panels, etc.
