Kinetic Objects is designed for art and design students with little or no previous experience with electronics. Starting with fundamental concepts of voltage, current and resistance, students engage in a series of hands-on labs. Each lab builds upon the information covered in the previous lab. Exercises and assignments encourage students to design and build simple custom control circuits with useful applications for a wide range of art projects. Students will also be introduced to building electronic projects with microcontrollers.
