Contextual Electronics is a 10 week program designed to teach electronics in the setting of an online community – equipped with tutorials, instructional videos, and a hands-on tasks for you to complete throughout the course:
From the FAQ:
It’s [Contextual Electronics] a site for learning all about electronics! The contextual refers to the fact that learning is easiest when you have a hands-on approach to learning and when you learn things as you need them. Without context (such as when you’re sitting in a lecture hall being told how to work an equation), it’s hard care about learning something. Once you know how it can be used, the learning becomes easy and fun!
This course is meant for people that are interested in electronics and want to move to the next level. They want to begin or get better at building electronic circuits for their own purposes.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
