Digital electronics are found in nearly everything we use, from refrigerators to mobile phones. Building upon the fundamentals of electronics and programming learned in the Robotics workshop, students will create a “retro” game console. While creating their consoles, students will learn about the core components that many common electronic devices share — including LCD screens, capacitive touch sensors, and audio playback systems.
This course is open to students entering Grades 8 through 12.
Students must have completed Robotics to enroll in this workshop.
Workshop hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Students should arrive no more than 30 minutes prior to the start of class. There are free optional after-workshop activities most days from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm.*
*Due to the July 4th holiday, Session 2 hours will be 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. After-workshop activities will be from 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
