kind of on topic maybe but I was under the impression we were getting some soldering stations from the Global Hackerspace Challenge, any update on that?
The Great Global Hackerspace Challenge will culminate in a live demonstration of each of the three semi-finalists in front of the panel of judges at the San Mateo Maker Faire. One team member from the final three hackerspaces will be flown out to California to attend the Faire and present their build. Air fare, hotel accommodation and daily food costs will all be covered by element14 - we'll provide more detail on this if you are selected.
In the spirit of collaboration over competition, and to thank you for taking part, element14 will be sending you a set of soldering equipment, including a soldering station, for your hackerspace once you have completed the challenge.
