The course fee includes all the required components.
Learn to use a breadboard, a soldering iron and build an FM receiver and an audio amplifier
This is a 2 hours long basic electronics course for absolute beginners and hobbyists. If you are interested in making simple DIY kits for hobby, then, this is the right course for you. The course is suitable for children and adults.
In this workshop, you will learn how to build a dark sensor, an NE555 timer based circuit and an FM receiver and an audio amplifier
While building these projects, you will learn the basic electronics theories, basic electronic components, making simple projects on a breadboard and soldering DIY Kits.
The workshop covers how science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) can be applied in any electronic project.
You will learn how to use an LED, diode, transistors, capacitors, integrated circuits, seven segment display, soldering iron, etc.
YOU WILL BUILD THIS:
We will use a different DIY kit for building the FM receiver. The output will be as shown on the video below. Your FM receiver will receive all the commercial FM stations and the audio amplifier will amplify the sound of your FM receiver.
By the end of this workshop students will:
- Build their own FM receiver and an audio amplifier
- Build NE555 timer based blinker and dark sensor on a breadboard
- Be able to build simple projects on a breadboard
- Be able to solder various kinds of DIY electronic kits
- Identify and use basic electronic components, like resistors, capacitors, transistors, ICs, diodes, switches, etc.
- Be able to use a basic multimeter
- Take away all the built projects.
Course topics :
- Basic electronic theories
- Resistor color code and capacitor code
- Making projects on a breadboard
- Basic through hole soldering
- Build an FM receiver and an audio amplifier
- How to use a multimeter
- Resources for electronics
Projects during the workshop
1. Dark sensor / Light sensor – Breadboard project
In this project, you will build a simple light/dark sensor on a breadboard. The objective of this experiment is to learn how to use a breadboard. Students will take away all the components required to build this project.
2. Astable and monostable mode of NE555- Breadboard project
In this project, you will build a simple touch switch and an LED blinker. The object of this experiment is to understand NE555 timer IC and learn how to use a breadboard. We will modify the project to build a sound generator. Students will take away all the components required to build this project.
3. FM receiver and an audio amplifier– Soldering and assembly project
In this project, you will build a simple FM receiver and an audio amplifier. Students will take away the soldered kits.
