Lesson 4 – Introduction to Electrical Engineering

On Saturday October 31stth, Access Engineering held their fourth lesson of the semester. The sections this week spanned computer science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering.

Students in the electrical engineering sections began to learn basics of Arduino programming and circuit design in Penn’s Linux computing labs. They constructed circuits using potentiometers and photoresistors as inputs to control different lights.

The computer science students continued to progress quickly through the curriculum and began to cover objects in their coursework.

The MEAM section continued to test and refine their catapults, and are preparing to make more advanced assemblies in the SolidWorks environment.
