This course serves a sampler for electronics, printed circuit boards (PCB), computer-aided design (CAD), 3D modelling and more. Students will solder circuits, use the 3D printers, cut and engrave their designs with the laser, and assemble a case for their project as they make the Neon Plaque in the PCB section of the website.

Safety: You are required to score 100% on all safety tests before starting any project work.
Every class, the 5-minute clean up bell will sound. All students are expected to stop their work and clean up. If you finish early, please help others to finish up before the end of class.
You will be working with expensive equipment in a shared space that is important to many people. I expect that you treat room and everyone in it with respect. You are required to work safely, clean up, and put in a consistent effort into your work. In exchange, I will try my best to make this course a meaningful experience.
