Electrical Training Lead: Jackie Mac Hale
RoboJackets Electrical Training focuses on preparing new members for working on electrical hardware focused projects on their team. Our curriculum starts with basic electronics concepts and prototyping and then transitions to printed circuit board (PCB) design and overall design fundamentals. We emphasize a hands on approach through interactive labs such as Arduino prototyping and PCB design in EAGLE.
Meetings Times & Important Resources
For Fall 2020, all of our training sessions will be held virtually over Microsoft Teams. Sessions will be held Monday and Thursday from 6:30 – 8:30 PM EST starting Monday September 14th. You only need to come to one of these sessions a week as they are identical.
Recordings of the lecture portions of our sessions will be posted on the RoboJackets Training YouTube channel and our other content is on GitHub. Questions outside the sessions can be asked on the Electrical/Firmware Training Piazza. To participate in Electrical Training and get access to the Piazza and Team, please join the Electrical Training Mailing List or post on Slack in #training-helpdesk for more information!
You are not required to attend training on the day when your team’s representative trainer is leading the session; we list the trainers and teams here in case you have a personal preference or want to contact your trainer if you have questions.
