Jump to: navigation, search

Conduct a soldering workshop to educate the community and drum up interest in DIY activities!


Project ideas:


Note: AdaFruit offers a 40% discount on kits purchased by hackerspaces, with a $250 minimum order. That's probably $250 post-discount, right?


Workshop Organization:

  • Borrow soldering irons from the community, purchase as few as possible (40W+).
  • Make sure the space has solder, flux, desoldering braid, and tip-cleaning supplies like cellulose sponges.
  • Find a way to project live video for instructor demonstration.
  • Advertise, maybe point out common uses for soldering?
