Circuit Design and Fabrication


Grades 6-12. 1-day workshops, or 1 to 2 hour sessions in multi-day classes and week long summer camps. In-person only.

Circuit boards are the heart of every electronic device we encounter. In this class, you will learn about every step of the process, from design to prototyping to fabrication.


- learn about the many steps involved in manufacturing printed circuit boards with hands on work and a virtual tour of commercial fabrication processes.
- start with a simple circuit and the simple electrical equations and math involved to make sure that the circuit will operate correctly and safely.
- learn how breadboards work by actually creating that same circuit, testing it and making electrical measurements to compare with your math.
- create the same circuit using perforated board and soldering.
- learn basics of circuit design software such as Eagle or NI Multisim to design the circuit.  You will have a professionally made version of the circuit, designed by Robotics And Beyond and fabricated by a circuit board manufacturer, and solder the devices onto the board and see it work.


Requirements: some experience with soldering or circuit fundamentals
