In Electronics, a year long block class, students build robots, fix electrical wiring, and write codes.
“As far as I know, there aren’t any prerequisites for this class other than having taken general algebra,” Kristen McKenna, teacher, said.
There have been many inventions built, like programmed LED displays, and labs with motors, switches configured, and lighting.
“I really enjoy teaching this class because of all the inventions such as the robotics and the coding skills,” McKenna said.
You also learn about atoms, how electrons move, the different spaces between insulator conductors, semi-conductors, and all the symbols for electronic components. During the learning process, you also learn how to read schematics. Students are also taught to solder parts.
“In the very last quarter of they year we are working with wiring,” McKenna said.
If you enjoy building and getting your hands dirty then this class is right for you.
