Circuit Playground Lesson #0 – The first step on your electronics journey: Gone are the days where you need thousands of dollars of equipment and lots physics/math background. Nowadays, if you want to learn to work with electronics, you can jump right in for $20 or less, and any sort of computer. And we’re talking about learning a lot of electronics – from the basics of analog to the complexities of firmware. With a good pack of parts, you can build a base of knowledge that will take you from your first blinking LED to someone who can start prototyping and inventing custom products.

Who is this for? Anyone with a computer they can install software on, an Arduino or compatible and the ability to type and click a mouse. That’s pretty much the minimum.

You don’t need to know a lot of physics or math, and just like an Art Degree isn’t required for making art and being creative, you don’t need to have a computer science degree. It helps if you’re comfortable using computers but that’s a skill most people pick up through life.

If you know how to program already – great! If not, don’t worry, we’ll teach you enough to be dangerous.
