Course Information:

This is a year-long course that requires selection of both semesters: S1 and S2. Project Lead The Way course Gateway Technical College This course is designed for 10th, 11th, or 12th-grade students. Students will greatly increase their knowledge in electronics as it pertains to digital circuitry design and construction. This course is a must for students seeking a career pathway in the highly recruited field of electronics and computer technology. Students will apply math principles to solve digital circuitry problems in design. Students will learn about logic gates, clocks, counters, flip-flops, multiplexers, segment displays, and programmable GALS, while designing digital circuitry. Lab work will consist of designing circuits using MultiSim electronic circuit simulation and electronic digital breadboarding.
