The electronics program at BeAM encompasses a variety of subjects, from simple circuits to programmable microcontrollers. BeAM provides tools for use like soldering irons, and simple circuit components (resistors, LEDs, etc.), but users must purchase their own microcontrollers. Check out the infographic below to explore an example electronics station in the Murray makerspace.

Finished with the training, but looking for more resources? Click on the ‘Quick Guides’ for helpful reference material, or the ‘Project Ideas’ for design suggestions.
You must complete the introductory BeAM 101 training before you can complete any of the BeAM tool trainings. Learn more here.
All BeAM tool trainings contain an online module that must be completed before moving on to the practice project. Access the Electronics module on the BeAM Sakai site here.
After you finish the online module, you must complete a practice project for that tool. Electronics requires a self-guided practice project, which means that you that you can work on the project independently at any point during BeAM’s open hours, no need to schedule a time.
