[SERIES] Introductory Electronics Theory

New member Greg Crabtree will be hosting Introductory Electronics Theory for all who are interested. These lessons will focus on the basic principles and concepts (Ohms Law, etc) that make all electronic circuits work. This is to support whatever hands-on project you’re working on at Quelab.

These lessons will start as a kind of open study group, meeting every week, with both group and individual sessions. We’ll start with the basics and work up from there to whatever topic you are interested in. You do not need any electronics background to get started, members can join the study group at any time, and you don’t have to attend every session. If you already know the basics, but want to learn more about an advanced topic, please ask and we’ll dive into it with you if we can.

We’ve set up an Eventbrite event for this class, and you can register here: http://quelab-electronics-study-group.eventbrite.com

About the teacher: Greg Crabtree has a degree in Electronics (1986), another degree in Renewable Energy (2006), and has worked professionally for nearly 30 years in electronics as a TV & Radio broadcast engineer, recording studio engineer, marine electronics tech (ship radar & navigation systems), avionics technician, and solar energy systems. Greg has also been a high school teacher, a musician and music teacher, and a private pilot.

This is the first-part of our annual planning meeting, where we brainstorm all the things we’ve done in the past year which were awesome, the things we could have done better, and the things we want to do again. Then we move on to new things we would like to do in the coming year. The January Meeting is where we prioritize all the things we discussed so the board has a focus for the coming year.
