Learn to Solder a Blinky POV
Tuesday, February 7, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CST)
TC Maker is offering a soldering class, build your own Wayne and Layne blinky POV taught Adam of Wayne and Layne and Paul of No Cube Designs.
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 you. 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, We will also be accepting other donations, including components if you have any around. If you are so inclined please do donate.
Time and Place: Tuesday Feb 7th 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the Hack Factory
