Professional Development: Introduction to Electronics Through Troubleshooting

Estimated completion time:

2 hours & 40 minutes

Provided by:




This workshop introduces basic principles of electricity and electronics in a unique way. Rather than starting with theory, participants will work their way around the room, examining and identifying the problems in several real circuits that are each broken in some way. Each circuit will represent a common electronic device, such as a remote control or a microwave oven clock. Participants will be given clues, such as schematics, and hints about which measurements to take until they find the problem. The instructors will help each participant start at their own knowledge level to become more comfortable using documentation, internet searches, and electrical measurement equipment to solve problems.
