Description – Learning the principals of Electricity, In this course, students will learn the basics of Electrical/Electronic circuits both in DC (Battery Operated) and AC (Home Power). The class is built on a hands-on experiments using Snap Circuits to build, test and learn the principals of electrical voltage, current and resistance. Learning will cover most popular components such as Diodes, Resistors, Capacitors and a variety of Sensors for light and for sound. A portion of this class will cover AC circuits and will explain how electricity is generated and how transformers and rectifiers operate in our daily lives.
