All Things Electronics

The world of electronics and circuitry can be a confusing one, but it is a pivotal one that can be easily understood with the right teaching. Join us to learn about electrical engineering, circuits, soldering and why electrical engineering is important in our everyday lives. Also, learn how to continue electronics learning at home with different free online software and kits that can be found through Adafruit and Amazon.

This class will be taught by two accomplished Electrical Engineering students, Danielle Boyer, our founder, and Michelle Chuang, a designer. Michelle studies at the University of Washington and has designed mobility vehicles for children with cerebral palsy. devices utilizing echolocation, and Disney-inspired lights that change based on your mood.

Recycling Technology

Back by popular demand, we are teaching on recycling technologies... this time virtually! This is one of our founder's favorite topics because it covers the world of engineering, technology, and environmental science. From near-infrared spectroscopy to recycling identification devices, learn about another way engineering impacts our lives. Learn about different technologies that affect our everyday lives, how to start your own engineering project, and how to engage in your community through recycling.
