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.

With over 5 Million units sold in 2014 alone, Chromebooks are a growing trend among schools and homes. One of the biggest drawbacks to Chromebooks has been the inability to connect it to any hardware (i.e. Arduino) -- until now.

An experiential learning project to teach students in high school and college how to use embedded electronics to accomplish things in the field as a proof of concept. - By Daniel Blake
Our very own Derek wrote a book! While we wait for the June publishing date, we asked him how it went.
Based on our behavior in previous years we should not be allowed back, but here we come.
