It's Monday, and that means it's time for Adventures in Science! This week, we dive into the mysterious world of rotary encoders.
Let's take a look at how LIDAR works and how we can use it in robots.
Time for the ever-popular loops discussion! We look at the three basic loops you can use in Arduino.
Building on our last Arduino programming episode, we look at creating compound conditional statements using logic operators.
We're back to exploring programming basics, and this week: if/else statements!
How to use the various math operators and compound assignment operators in C/C++.
We present another set of concepts in the computer science series as they relate to Arduino.
This week, we look at what constitutes syntax in a programming language and how to employ it when writing code in Arduino.
We examine the computer science concept of how a single-threaded, sequential program flows in Arduino.
A set of calipers can be an incredibly useful tool for precisely measuring the distance between objects.
Staring at the multitude of buttons, switches and knobs on the face of an oscilloscope can be daunting. For this "Adventures in Science," we show you how to take basic measurements with an oscilloscope.
Looking to upgrade your workshop or mad science lab with more power? Here's how to get started with benchtop power supplies.
Just getting into electronics or want a refresher on digital multimeter basics? We've got you covered.
There are two basic ways to connect electronic components with two terminals: series and parallel. In this episode, we examine those two types of circuits and show how to calculate equivalent resistance.
Power is the rate of doing work, and for electricity, that means the rate in which energy is converted in a circuit.
Let's look at the resistor and how it affects current and voltage in a circuit. Here's a hint: if you know two of either voltage, current or resistance, you can solve for the third.
In this episode, we'll explore how electric current flows through a circuit.
Over the next few weeks, we'll explore the basics behind electricity in a series of videos.
