You'll be introduced to just enough electronic fundamentals to understand how this kit's circuit works and how each of the components in the kit work together to make it happen.
The Patchr Editor is smart too. Built into each lesson are design rules that automatically verify the layout and routing of your circuit to ensure your design's success.
