Make a Light Up Weevil Eye and learn how to solder while you do it!

The WeevilEye is a through-hole soldering kit designed for the beginner. It has a low part count so even young kids can easily complete it. Once it’s put together the red LED “eyes” light up brighter or darker according to how much light is getting to the photosensor.

Learning how to solder is an extremely useful skill for all skillsets and ages.

As we assemble our project we will discuss all aspects of soldering including, safety, soldering irons, component identification, preparation, types of solder, and flux. We will also cover tinning and splicing wires and desoldering as necessary. There will be examples of prototype circuit construction techniques and extra components and boards to practice on.
