How does Wi-Fi work? in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
Come learn a bit about signal processing in the context of Wi-Fi communications. Focus will be on the physical layer communication schemes used in the Wi-Fi standards.


What is the Fourier Transform? in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
We will discuss the Fourier Transform, its use as a tool for analysis, and some engineering applications.


Circuits and Electronics! in Spark 2015 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2015)
Learn about the fundamentals of circuits and electronics. An introduction to electronics concepts, components, and devices. We will start by introducing several circuit elements and circuit schematic symbols. We will then define some of the physical laws and quantities governing circuits. From there, we will learn how to use various tools to measure electrical quantities. We will look at circuit schematics and perform analysis of circuit function. Simple design problems will be posed to give students the opportunity to demonstrate and apply what they've learned. Integrating knowledge of additional components, we will approach more complicated circuits and applications.


Signals and Systems! in Splash 2014 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2014)
Come learn about the exciting mathematics and applications of signal processing! We will start by defining various systems in both continuous and discrete-time contexts before branching out to discuss signal transforms, Fourier series, convolution, filters, etc. In addition, we will talk about how the theory is used in practice for such applications as audio processing, medical analysis, the JPEG image format, and biometrics. There will be demos and interactive activities!
