Probably the most versatile tool in the maker’s arsenal, electronics allow you to program elements of the physical world to do what you want, and form the basis of some of the coolest machines at the lab.

With a huge range both in potential and complexity, there are tons of project possibilities and definitely something for everyone. The links below have a lot of the resources you’ll need, and if you want a quick introduction watch the videos below. If you want to see what we have at the lab feel free to make an appointment or just drop by on one of our Maker Dayz.
