We quite often hear people saying “I’d love to get into electronics but i don’t know how to solder” Although you can do lot of electronics including our Arduino Workshop without needing to solder, it quickly becomes a really handy skill to make you own projects and fix/hack electronics.
The workshop starts with the absolute basics, showing you the tools you’ll use and demonstrating how to make a solder joint. You’ll then get straight in there soldering your own BlinkStick with help from experienced solderers. Plug your completed BlinkStick into a computer and make pretty colours! If you would like to do this at the workshop please bring along a laptop.
The workshops takes place on Saturday 16 November from 2:30-5pm at Edinburgh Hacklab @ Summerhall and includes a BlinkStick kit (retail price £9.99) and tea/coffee.
We welcome younger participants, however for under 16’s we request that a parent/carer is present for the duration of the workshop.
