In many Swiss schools pre-university students are still introduced to electric circuits by means of the traditional Edison light bulbs, the so called "Lämplipraktika" (Swiss idiom for “Practicing with light bulbs”). Not the best method, if we consider that traditional bulbs are no longer allowed and that electronics have changed since Edinson’s times!
In this workshop a number of simple experiments with the TI-Innovator microcontroller system, the TI-Nspire programming and actual electronic and electric components are presented: SPDT- and DIP-switches, discrete LEDs, 7-segment LED displays (red and blue), relays, resistors, rectifiers, thermistors etc.
