Event Details

Modeled after SparkFun's Soldering class, TC Maker is offering a soldering class. The kit and the price is all the same but the location is a not Denver, it's Minneapolis.

Description: 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 Simon game, 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 8 students. You'll be soldering the Simon PTH Kit. By the end of the night, you will have a functioning game to take home and show off to your friends (we get funny looks all the time).

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!

The class is expected to take around 1 hour to complete, there is a buffer built in incase we go a bit longer.

Prerequisites: None! Just bring you. The class price includes the cost of the Simon Kit. The class is open to the public and to members.

What to bring:  TC Maker will provide all the tools, irons and solder.

Proceeds above re-couping costs will go to help keep TC Maker a float, for more on the current situation TC Maker has found it's self in.see our blog post. We will also be accepting other donations, so if you are so inclined please do donate, we have a tax deductable status too if you are interested.

Who is Teaching: Paul Sobczak Electrical Engineer and other TC Maker Members.
