Adam Wolf of Wayne and Layne, and Twin Cities Maker Member will be hosting a class on how to solder one of his popular kits the blinky POV.
If you’ve never soldered before, this is the class for you! This course teaches through-hole (90% of electronic kits) soldering and is recommended for the beginner. This is a hands-on class where the students learn techniques to help them solder through-hole components. Soldering can be daunting for the first solder joint, then the 2nd solder joint is not so bad, and by the time you’ve assembled the blinky grid, you will be quite confident and proficient in basic soldering skills.
Classes take place at The Hack Factory. We provide all the tools, irons, solder, parts, and seats for up to 8 students.
There is a minimum age requirement of 8 years old, but other than that, anyone is encouraged to sign up. We teach people all the time with no previous soldering experience! You do not need to be a member of Twin Cities Maker to attend.
The class is expected to take around 1.5 hour to complete, there is a buffer built in in case we go a bit longer.
Prerequisites: None! Just bring yourself. The class price includes the cost of the blinky POV kit.
What to bring: TC Maker will provide all the tools, irons and solder.
Proceeds above will go to help keep TC Maker, support the space.
Time and Place: Tuesday Feb 7th 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the Hack Factory
Cost: $16 (This is a great deal, the retail price is also $16, but with out the hack factory to solder at, and no Adam to be taught by.)
