Junior Electronics

From calculators to game consoles, we are literally surrounded by complex electronics. Yet few people have any knowledge of how these amazing devices work. In Junior Electronics, your student will learn about the most common electronic circuits. They will use this knowledge to design, build, and test solid state electronic devices. Finally, they will combine their knowledge of hardware with the Arduino microcontroller to build advanced circuits that play music, drive motors, display text, and sense the world around them.

Your student will learn:

  • Basic electronic components, including resistors, capacitors, and relays
  • How to design and test basic circuits
  • The Arduino microcontroller and how to use it with solid state electronics

Note: Students should have a basic knowledge of fractions


This course is open to students entering Grades 5 through 7.

DigiPen's ProjectFUN offers workshops, camps and college prep courses for kids and teens. Technology courses are held in Redmond, WA (near Seattle and Bellevue), and online.
