  1. Explain the theory of the transistor. Tell how transistors may be used with resistors, capacitors, and coils - in making simple circuits.

  2. Do the following:
    1. Draw a simple circuit showing the resistors or tubes. Label all parts. Wire the circuit.
    2. Demonstrate the right way to solder and unsolder.
    3. Explain how to avoid heat damage to the parts.

  3. Explain the following:
    1. Remote-control - build a device to show how and electronic circuit is used for remote control.
    2. Electronic brain - explain the binary system of numbers. Change binary numbers to decimal numbers. Build a simple flip-flop circuit with either transistors or tubes.

  4. Discuss job opportunities in the field of electronics.
