We with the help of the SSU electrical engineering department will be starting an electrical circuitry unit.  Starting with snap kits pictured below, we will learn how circuits work and eventually graduate to a virtual bread board using project ignite on AutoDesk.  From there using variable DC power supplies we will be physically wiring basic circuits on our way to vex kit robots!
