Electronics in a nutshell: non-technical, bite-sized 
What you'll learn
- How electronics components work, how they are used in circuits, and how to use them in your projects
- Common sensors used by Arduino, Raspberry Pi & other circuits
- Why we use electronic components the way we do
- Understand how the most important electronic components work
- Understand the different electronics terminology, units, and electronic symbols for various electronics
- This course is a great building block for begginers to take on more advanced electronics concepts or use this as a resource for a quick refresher on concepts
- Absolutely 0 prior electronics knowledge is needed.
- An passion & interest in learning how electronics work and how to use them in your projects!
This course is the extension to my popular "Electronics crash course" YouTube series with over 43,000 viewers in the last 5 months.
This course was designed with a singular goal -- to make learning electronics fun, and approachable for everyone. Electronics are at the heart of the 21st century from robotics, automobiles, automation, communications, security etc. This course will be your best friend in helping familiarize you with the history, theory, & use-cases behind the core electronics that power our world.
What makes this course so unique?
Before we dive into the details of this course, I want to share with you what makes this course special. When I started learning electronics, all the courses, and guides I found were overly technical, too long for my attention span, and far too boring. This course fixes all of that. Each lesson is roughly 5 minutes long, uses animations to explain complex concepts, and I use real world analogies to help you understand complex concepts. Plus this course has zero boring PowerPoints or slideshows. We also touch on the history and fun facts about the why of each electronics that keep the lessons more interesting.
Furthermore, each video lesson is paired with a very deep video article that dives much deeper into the concepts if you want a deeper knowledge, and each video has a quiz to make sure that you are able to understand the concepts being taught! This approach makes it incredibly easy to get a breadth of knowledge and also a depth of knowledge.
Lastly, new lessons are added each week so you can keep learning!

Who this course is for:
- Absoulte begginers who want to learn electronics concepts in a non-technical manner with bite sized video lectures
I started my journey in the maker movement at the age of 12 and now I am enrolled to study engineering & robotics in Carnegie Mellon University.
My achievements include
* Grand Prize winner in Amazon’s international voice activated challenge for my IOT Smart Mirror.
* Quarter million views on my invention and tutorial website.
* Published in UK-Based Hack-Space Magazine, ZaoBao Newspaper, Vulcan Post, Yahoo!, and other media coverage by Intel, Autodesk, Hackaday, and Instructables.
* Judge on national television for ‘Robotics & Technology’ category, Star young achievers awards.
* Speaker in conventions such as IOTAsia, Campus Party, Maker Faire, InspireNEXT etc.
Sharing my passion for learning has been an integral part of my ‘Making’ journey since I was young. At the age of 14, I joined XPC: one of Singapore’s first Makerspaces where I designed the electronics fab-lab and mentored fellow makers. At the age of 15, I helped organize Maker’s Block: one of Singapore’s first Makerfaires. Here I gave talks on 3D printing and taught the intro to soldering workshop. At the age of 16, I interned at Qwikfab: a 3D printing startup. Here I was a key member in the design team that built their flagship 3D printer-- The Beast 2.0-- for clients like NUS, RedHat Linux, and A-Star. I have also worked under AIG on media creation, Imran Repair in repairing consumer electronics, and the Liter of Light initiative in India to build & install solar street lamps in villages without electricity.
At the age of 19, I started my own STEM education company Tinker Spark in Singapore to prepare kids for success in a digital 21st century. I pioneered novel ways to teach robotics, computer science, and electronics in an appealing manner to young children. Using my teaching style, I created digital courses officially accredited by Microsoft Makecode & also taught kids aged 8-16.
I am always happy to chat about Maker & STEM education topics.
