Introduction to Electronics (Arts & Electronics) is a course of hands-on projects and tutorials that combine low power electronic circuits and artistic crafts. The electronic circuits are generally a collection of low powered electronics that include LED lightings, sensors, flexible and sticky circuit boards, as well as simple controllers. The course projects walk the students through the process of designing and making a series of customizable projects. We use thin, light weight, and low powered electronics to craft electronics either as simple circuits or interactively onto new spaces and interfaces such as papers and clothing.
