Intro to Soldering – Weevil Eye Kit

February 22, 2018 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Get your hands on a soldering iron and make something with electronics! Attendees will learn basic techniques for doing electronics soldering and how to use other associated tools. If you’ve never soldered before or could use a refresher on how to do it (or if you’re just looking for a fun class to take) this is the class for you!

There are two electronics kits that are provided for pratice in this class: a Learn to Solder Badge, and a another more advanced kit! This month we are doing a Weevil Eye Kit, a glow-in-the-dark bug that detects when its in a dark room and lights up its eerie red eyes.

There are a 5 different options from Sparkfun that we do each month:

  • Weevil Eye Kit
  • Simon Says Kit
  • Larson Scanner Kit
  • Electronic Dice Kit
  • Benchtop Power Board Kit

Each attendee will have a working light-up creation and another unique circuit built by the end of the class, as well as an understanding of how soldering works and the different applications for it. If you want to get into jewelry or stained glass soldering, this would provide you with a good start for technique and what tools and materials are required.

Instructor: Alex Nunn
