Extended quarantine special! While we’re all still stuck in our home, get yourself an edumacation! All my Robotics courses are on sale for just 10 bucks US until Friday May 2nd. Hopefully the quarantine will be over by then.  🙂

Preview this course!

In this module I course, you will:

  • build electronic circuits
  • actually make some electronic components from scratch
  • learn about electricity
  • practice soldering skills
  • learn basic analog electronics.

You’ll need some basic math skills and that’s it! No prior knowledge of electricity or electronics is required, and yet by the end of this course you’ll have built:

  • functioning electronic circuits like
    • light flashers
    • sound effects
    • the roboticist’s best friend: the servo motor which is a motor that turns to a specific direction at your command.

All courses have open captions for the hearing impaired.

If you do not already have electronics parts and breadboard, you should consider buying the bundle package of the analog electronics kit along with this course.  You can get the bundle package here:

Kit + Robotics Course Part 1

Bundle package: Analog Electronics kit & Robotics: learn by building, part 1: Electricity and Electronics

This course is the prerequisite for the module II course. Part II is Digital Electronics, in which  you will work with a computer-on-a-chip and hook that computer up to the real world.

In module III you’ll learn crucial physics and robotic drive systems (really a subset of physics), as well as the construction methods for building, say, a submarine robot.

In module IV, you’ll venture into prototyping and culminate all you’ve learned as you build a 3D printer from scratch, hook it up to a desktop computer and make your own plastic parts.  The 3D printer is, in effect, a robot which you can then use to make parts for your other robot designs. The 3D printer also uses a computer controlled rack so you could also potentially use it as a laser cutter or a milling machine and make parts out of other materials like metal.

Get the pre-sale price for this course if you purchase before midnight eastern time, January 1st, 2016!


Buy the course once and allow all of your children to participate. However, some of the parts in the electronic parts kit are consumables, and since this is a learn-by-doing course, typically some parts may get ruined.

Depending on what the first student does with the parts and what they build, you might consider purchasing a separate Analog electronics kit for each child, or just extra protoboards as one focus of the course is how to recycle electronics to obtain your own parts for cheap or free.  Extras are available on the Products page.

    I Don’t know if this is even an active site anymore but I bought this course earlier today–was charged by PayPal but when I check the “my course” section it says no courses. Earlier it said it was processing but now nothing. I am also taken back that I did not receive an email from this site, nor is there a place to even email. I’m sincerely disappointed. I had watched a couple of the demo videos on Udemy but came to this site since the course was cheaper. I feel disappointed.

      Hi Jonathan,
      Yes it’s still an active site, but with some broken parts, some of which seem to be completely at random. Like not adding people to courses – sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. And because we’re going to completely overhaul the entire site, I haven’t wanted to put any time into fixing it only to just throw away all the work fixing it. Plus I’ve been sick so I haven’t been able to work out the plan with the webmaster. I apologize for the delays in processing your enrollment. I manually added you to the Robotics course 1 and also enrolled you for free in course 2. You should see them under “My Courses” when you log in now. Have a great day!

    Thank you Ian i appreciate the quick response and the additional course–that means a lot. Please change my review to 5 stars–I have watched enough of the previews to know I am going to enjoy this course–and your customer service is exceptional. I also hope you are feeling better!!
