The Summer Semester is coming up! If you have an idea for a project, but you're not sure how to go about taking it from a dream to reality, this is the class for you. This five-day electronics-palooza will guide you from schematic to breadboard to gerber files to soldering and stenciling. Bring your ideas, half-finished designs, enthusiasm and your own lunch (or visit a local eatery). This series of classes runs from Monday August 15th through Friday August 19th, and will go from 8 AM to 5 PM.
Here's how the classes will work. We will start with a discussion of the design process, sourcing parts and datasheets as well as how to create schematics, followed by an introduction to Arduino. The second day will cover soldering (PTH or SMD), a brief discussion of Lilypad (with optional take-home activity), solder stenciling and an introduction to Processing. On day three we will work with Eagle PCB layout software and cover more Arduino programming concepts. Day four is dedicated to GPS and wireless. On the final day SparkFun will provide a whole day of support for independent pursuit of projects. While we can’t promise you will finish your project, we can promise that we will make sure you get exposure to a wide variety of skills and plenty of time to discuss design details with our engineers.
