Learn to Solder with Simon
- Lindsay Craig, Educational Outreach Coordinator, SparkFun Electronics
If you’ve never soldered before, this is the class for you! SparkFun Electronics has been teaching soldering a lot over the past few years - the Simon PTH kit is a combination of everything we’ve learned. This course teaches through-hole soldering and is recommended for the true beginner. This will be 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 Simon game, you will be quite confident and proficient in basic soldering skills.
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!
Note: This workshop requires separate $10 registration which includes the cost of the Simon Kit that you can take home with you afterwards. Register early to reserve your seat as capacity is limited!
