Digital Electronics
Prerequisite: Introduction to Engineering Design or Electricity
Credit: 1
Grade Level: 10-12

This is a course in applied logic that encompasses the application of electronic circuits and devices. Computer simulation software is used to design and test circuitry prior to the actual construction of circuits and devices. Students will experiment, test, and analyze the theory and application of electrical and electronic systems. Activities include analog and digital circuits, logic gates and Boolean algebra, counter systems, microcontrollers and robotics. Students design, assemble, and trouble shoot electronic projects. DE gives students the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through activity-, project-, and problem-based (APPB) learning that is also used in IED.
