Lab Skills Workshop Registration

Event Date: Monday April 29th to Friday May 3rd    |    Event Time: 1:30-4:30pm daily

Event Location: Life 2532

Registration Fee: $150 + 5% GST

This workshop is aimed primarily (but not solely) at students who aim to be going into 2nd-year physics in September and who feel that they lack confidence in their laboratory and computing skills. The workshop is intended to be a not-for-credit primer for such courses as Phys210 (Computational Physics) and Phys219 (Experimental Physics).

Workshop goals (zero experience necessary):

  • to get started with the Python language and control a microcontroller with Python
  • to learn how to calibrate sensors and make/display/analyze measurements
  • to debug an electrical circuit with an oscilloscope

Students will leave the workshop with Python running on their laptops, and each will have an Arduino Nano microcontroller, an ultrasound distance-measuring device, a breadboard and cables to take away.

Sorry, registration for this event is now closed.
