Learn to Solder
Sunday, March 27, 2011 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (PDT)
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 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.
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 will to a TC Maker Starving Hacker Fund to help those members who would like to be involved but might not have 50 dollars to spare that month.
Who is Teaching: Paul Sobczak Electrical Engineer and TC Maker Member
