Basics of Electronics

I have accumulated:

2 arduino boards
2 bread boards
1 Billion LED lights
Colorful wires
1 actuator

I don’t know yet how to use them! I am excited about the prospect of building a basic tool, such as a battery powered fan. Not a coder or techie at heart, I have a deep appreciation for the innovation and design work that comes from those that are. Developing basic facility with electronics will inform me about the uses of grander design innovations, my primary interests being in medical prosthetics, robotics, neurophotonics. I feel that this workshop with the MIT Media Lab will produce some small byte of insight into these sophisticated tools.
