Basic Soldering at MDE Library

Another basic soldering class for the patrons of the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library. ¬†Everybody’s Sparkfun Weevil Eye project worked! Yay! It does help to have Hakko soldering stations.

Teaching Soldering at the Public Library Association Conference, Denver April 8, 2016

Using Sparkfun Weevil Eye kits (my go-to kit) I taught 10 people the basics of soldering during PLA. While most had no experience with soldering, a few had soldered in the past and were able to pick it up again. Everybody did a great job (all the kits worked!) and I was able to meet some cool folks from other libraries around the country.

Soldering Day at the Library

Today I taught a soldering class at the library. Using Hakko soldering stations to put together a Sparkfun Weevil Eye kit, the class learned the basics of electronics soldering by building a printed circuit board (PCB) kit. They were a good group of people and quick learners. Everybody’s kit worked the first time! A fun time was had by all.
