M12531: Probability, Statistics, and Understanding the World in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
Probability is the language we use to understand the world around us. It helps us conclude that gravitational waves exist or that certain drug treatments actually help cure a disease. Come learn the fundamentals fundamentals of probability and statistics from random variables to estimation. In particular, we'll talk about where these come up in the world and why it's important to understand them.

E11614: I Heart Circuits in Splash 2017 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2017)
If you've ever wanted to learn how to use a breadboard, or how resistors, capacitors, and op amps work together to make magical circuits, or are just curious about electronics in general, stop your head scratching and take this class! Learn to understand the design of basic circuits through the process of building a heartbeat monitor! And guess what!! You get to take home and keep the heartbeat monitors you built! Take this class and you'll learn to heart circuits just as much as I do.

E11303: How to Breadboard for Dummies in Spark 2017 (Mar. 11 - 12, 2017)
Are you interested in developing hands-on electrical engineering knowledge? Do you like the idea of learning the magic behind circuits from the fundamentals? Register for this class (the first in a series of three classes to be taught over SPARK weekend) to learn how to become a breadboard master! You might even get to keep your creations, which might be a motion sensor, automatic garden lamp, or an automatic window-shade opener! By the way, the other two classes in this series of electronics courses are: How to Circuit for Dummies, Level I, and How to Circuit for Dummies, Level II.

E11304: How to Circuit for Dummies, Level I in Spark 2017 (Mar. 11 - 12, 2017)
If you already know how to use a breadboard or have also registered for/taken my previous class, How to Breadboard for Dummies, join How to Circuit for Dummies (Level I) to get a deeper understanding of designing and understanding basic circuits, including how you can use op-amps to create a heartbeat monitor and how to utilize diodes and capacitors to charge a battery with your bare hands (magical energy harvesting). If you are interested in this series of electronics courses, remember to register for the third and final class in the series, called How to Circuit for Dummies, Level II.

E11305: How to Circuit for Dummies, Level II (I Heart Circuits) in Spark 2017 (Mar. 11 - 12, 2017)
Have you ever wanted to learn how to harvest the power of moving electrons to create working circuits? Join this class to delve into the magical, mystical field of electrical engineering, made simple and easy for you to understand! We'll be teaching you how to make your own heartbeat monitor (ECG), so you can heart circuits just as much as we heart circuits!

E10804: I Heart Circuits in Splash 2016 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2016)
