Engineering 100-950


As we publish labs, they will become available here.

Lab 1: Arduino 101

Learning how to program and wire an Arduino micro-controller to control LEDs on a breadboard.

Lab 1b: Creating an Altium Schematic

Learning how to produce a PCB schematic in Altium.

Link to lab 1b

Lab 2: Temperature Sensing

Using our Arduino and circuitry knowledge to read data from a temperature sensor and plot it in real-time.

Lab 3: Creating a Standalone Circuit and Adding Sensors

Saving Arduino sensor data to a microSD card so that we can use it later, and powering an Arduino with a battery. Additionally, adding more sensors such as pressure, acceleration, and humidity sensors.

:warning: This may come in handy when launching our weather balloons…

Lab 4: Power and Calibrations

Creating a voltage regulating circuit to handle the power from the battery, and calibrating our complete circuit with known values.
