Last semester, I was asked to do a presentation for WEBELOS Scout Badge Day on electrical engineering (go figure). Anyway, I was asked to do it again this semester because apparently I’m one of three electrical engineers on campus who they figure is up to the challenge ((I actually have no idea if this is true or not. The email was just addressed to me and two other EE’s)).
Unfortunately, I don’t have the 4 hours to spare this weekend so I had to pass on helping out. However, they still want to use my presentation ((Which I’m told was “really great”)). I still had it on my computer, so wrote some notes in the presenters comments and I’m releasing it under a CC license.
The target audience is pretty young, so I skipped over all the words (at least as much as I could) and went straight to pictures and a couple of videos. The notes are far from complete, so you’ll need to have at least some sort of background in electrical engineering to be able to explain everything.
Let me know if you have any questions and enjoy!
I also a collection of electrical-related images that might be of interest as well:
You’ll need to download both video files and either the PPTX (preferred) or PPT file.
