Why you should come to this session

Electronics for beginners!!!
Building electronic circuits is easy! Of course it takes time to become an expert. But you can start having fun, and build useful things pretty much right away.
So, in this session you can learn the following:

  • What are the basic components required to build circuits.
  • How to read a schematic diagram.
  • How to use a bread board to build circuits.
  • How to build electronic circuits by understanding the schematic diagram.

Everyone will have a chance to build a circuit! It’s going to be a hands-on and interactive session.

Session outline

Following will be discussed in the session,

  • Basic information about the components used in the circuit building like Active and Passive Devices.
  • Information about Integrated Circuit’s (IC’s) and Micro controllers.
  • Building circuits using the above components.
  • Here are few of the circuits we are going to build in our session - LED glow circuit, Automatic dark detector circuit, touch sensor circuit and more…

Here are few useful links to read schematic diagrams of the circuits
