This workshop will teach you the fundamentals of soldering to make strong, permanent electrical connections in your circuits!
Over the course of the afternoon, you will learn how to use and care for a soldering iron and get a lot of practice soldering components on some blank circuit boards. If you’re feeling confident, you can even try your hand at some smaller surface-mount components! Once you feel you’re ready, you can then try to solder a gadget we provide—and bring it home!
What to Bring
We will provide practice materials, soldering irons, and other supplies. Your ticket cost includes a gadget/kit that you can solder and bring home with you; all other materials must be returned at the end of the workshop.
Participants are free to bring their own soldering projects to work on during the workshop.
