On Friday, Nov. 9, Claudio Bravo will be facilitating an engaging session on electric circuits.
“As an invisible, yet incredibly powerful force, electricity is a mystery for many people. This presentation will provide a back stage pass into the secrets of electricity through simple to understand concepts and a hands-on project where attendees will build their own LED flashlight. Curiosity is the only prerequisite for this lecture,” shares Bravo, a Mechatronics instructor on the Tahoe-Truckee campus.
Bravo came to Tahoe from Chile in 1978 to ski. He studied electrical engineering at Sierra College and UC Berkeley, and worked in the Bay Area as an aircraft electrical systems engineer. Returning to Tahoe with his wife in 1995 to raise their two daughters, he now works as an electrical contractor and lighting designer in addition to educator at Sierra College. One of his biggest joys is teaching the magic of electricity to students.
