Supercharge your Arduino projects and extend your knowledge to program and interface the Arduino platform. For Arduino users who have taken the Introduction to Arduino course or who have prior experience in the Arduino ecosystem. For this interactive, hands-on class, it is assumed that you are already familiar with programming the Arduino board using the IDE including variables and data types, flow control logic functions, rapid prototyping using the solderless breadboard, and Arduino shields.
Get a comprehensive overview of the essentials of electronics. Starting with the basics, you’ll move through advanced applications such as solving current-voltage-resistance-impedance problems, making power calculations and more. No prior technical knowledge is required. Required textbook: Teach Yourself Electricity and Electronics, 6th Edition. This book is not available at the COCC Bookstore but can be purchased from a company of your choice. No class 11/22/17.
A fun, hands-on introduction to robotics for thinkers, inventors, and creators. Gain insight into how robots “think” and process different input signals to achieve a desired goal. You will build a robot and learn about coding, engineering concepts, mechanical robotics concepts, and more. In this combination lecture and hands-on lab class, discover the ways robotics influence the interconnectedness of our world and the Internet of Things (IoT). Bring a laptop to class with either a Windows, Apple, or Linux operating system. Purchase a PI-BOT® V2.00 kit (approx. $99) online from www.stemcenterusa.com prior to class.
Python is a free, simple to learn and powerful language. If you are new to programming, Python is a great place to start. If you have coding experience, learning Python will add to your skills and marketability. Python is used in many industries and for many applications. Utilizing a combination of hands-on and lecture, your instructor will guide you through the basics and specifics of Python.
Use the power of 3D CAD to move your ideas to design and beyond. Experience Fusion 360 in action as you design projects with the help of skills lectures, hands-on experience, dynamic group interaction and collaboration. Short homework related to in-class projects will be provided to help practice skills. As a cloud-based 3D CAD/CAM tool for product development, Fusion 360 combines industrial and mechanical design, collaboration, and machining in a single package. Fusion 360 is natively written for both Mac and PC, allowing you to use your preferred OS or both at no additional cost. See http://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/overview for free download for students.
