Beginner's Electronics: 10 Skills You Need to Know. Many of us have never even touched a soldering iron – but making things can feel incredibly rewarding.

Beginner's Electronics: 10 Skills You Need to Know

There are some key skills you need when tackling electronics projects – whether you plan on fixing broken devices or assembling Arduinos (our Arduino guide), the right skills make the difference between rage and elation. Here’s a quick run-down of ten of the most basic DIY electronics skills to help you get started: Breadboarding A breadboard allows the construction of a circuit, but without soldering. Why? A breadboard allows the input of a DC current using the channels in the left and right sides of the board. I reviewed several YouTube tutorials, which covered basic breadboarding – and this is the best: Soldering Soldering irons run the gamut from expensive to cheap – I recommend this iron. One particular method from this tutorial that I don’t recommend: Flicking solder. '3-D Cutter' Othermill Goes On Sale.

Scratch is a great programming environment for people of all ages, as it allows the total beginner to create all sorts of interactive programs and fun with a simple graphical environment.

Controlling LEDs with Scratch on Raspberry Pi

You can also run Scratch on a Raspberry Pi, and to make things even more interesting you can now control the GPIO pins from Scratch with the help of the instructions by Scractchmypi. By using a modified version of Scratch, new instrions are available to control the GPIO pins, and thus have some blinky fun with LEDs or perhaps control items of a more serious nature. Either way, it adds to the fun and gives teachers an option to explore basic electronics - so visit the instruction page to learn how.

Worlds of Making @ NMHS. Setting up a Makerspace has been a priority of mine from the moment I started here at New Milford High School, and it’s already well on its way to being achieved.

Worlds of Making @ NMHS

Having a school principal who provides the perfect mix of encouragement and autonomy has, of course, been a great help, but it has also been very much a team effort: the school’s tech team and custodians have been very supportive and cooperative, along with a diverse variety of students interested in ‘making’ experiences. At the heart of the vision for my Makerspace is to develop the space and to provide resources and opportunities that will aid in promoting web literacy.
