Electronics Club
« on: January 22, 2020, 03:04:58 am »
I am 15 years old and I need help to make an electronics lab for an electronics club that I'm making at school. We are a small group of low income, high school students. Most of us are interested in electronics. We have done a lot of research on the test equipment that we will need and we have concluded that if we go cheap then we can get everything for under $600. We tried to get help from the school but they couldn't help with much, but maybe you can help by donating to our GoFundMe. The link is https://www.gofundme.com/f/electronics-club?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link-tip&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet .

Sounds like a great idea. I think that a few low-cost multimeters and low-cost Logic Analyser would be far more useful for Arduino projects than an single low-end Oscilloscope.

Also, don't forget that there is free software like KiCAD that can be a very useful tool for drawing schematics, even if you don't use it to make PCBs.

(you might want to get rid of the junk on the end of your link URL BTW).

What sort of projects do you think you will attempt?

Gaze not into the abyss, lest you become recognized as an abyss domain expert, and they expect you keep gazing into the damn thing.

This is your second "campaign" with the other one not getting anywhere as it was for you personally (I deleted your first post). For $600 can't the school help?

The first rule of Electronics Club is.... You Don't Talk About Electronics Club!!

From the go fund me page you said:
"Sorry not much of a writer"

One of the most important skills for any engineer is learning how to write and communicate your ideas well.

thanks
We found a few cheap multimeters online and an oscilloscope that plugs into a pc but it is still a large price if you have any other recommendations then PM me Email removed by moderator. Please do not post personal details online.
