DIY Robotics Day 1

Today was a very fun and exciting day. We learned some of the basics of circuits and their manipulation, and we used hands-on activities to learn how circuits work, and a few of their different components, including power source, LED’s, wires, resistors, pentiometers, multimeters, ¬†and capacitors.

After this, we opened up some small toys to examine and hack their circuit boards. Along with that, we were able to do some circuit bending, which involved putting many separate circuit boards, speakers, and LED’s together. We also covered important safety information so that we are safe throughout.

Overall, I learned a lot about the basics of circuits, and I am eager to come back tomorrow and learn more.
