Students learn about the fundamentals of electricity, soldering and lab procedures in the classroom. They then apply this knowledge to constructing the base of their robot with simple circuits and develop their first input - output machine.
In this lesson we go over the voltage, current, resistance, Ohm's Law and other electricity safety to give you the foundation for the course.
Lab Procedures and Soldering Station
In this lesson we go over the lab procedures, where to find things in the classroom, and introduce the soldering station.
How to Solder: Rat Tail Splice
Students take their first step into soldering by learning the rat tail splice. A strong solder that is relatively easy.
How to Solder: NASA Splice
Students learn about the NASA splice, a string splice with a minimal footprint that is used by NASA engineers.
