Course Content

This course offers an introduction to the fundamentals of electronics and programming through building working prototypes of interactive devices and systems. By taking a hands-on approach, which means spending a lot of time building circuits, coding, playing with sensors and controls, the students will observe how best to make all of these things relate to the user s expression or environmental changes. These experiments will also allow students to test and observe the affordances of their designed systems. Course work will involve weekly readings and exercises for learning the technical skills, additionally there will be midterm and final projects that will allow students to think outside the box and have some fun while making something of choice.
