Learn to Solder
SplatSpace held its first week of Learn to Solder classes in November, also known as Learn to Solder Month. We're taking the month of December off and will resume our Learn to Solder workshops in January. Our goal is to have a Learn to Solder Class every two months or so, interspersed with other beginning electronics workshops.
The Learn to Solder class is open to all -- you do not need to be a member of SplatSpace to participate. We invite folks working on robotics, RC planes, trains, automobiles and boats, scale modeling, ham radio, anyone who has an interest to learn a little electronics.
SplatSpace has a lot of resources to make this kind of class happen. We have complete Learn to Solder kits available with everything you would need for $30, add another $10 for a 7-Function multimeter and solder sucker. See: Scott's Learn to Solder Kits If you don't have the budget to own your own tools and supplies, we have misc. electronics components, many soldering stations and tools for public use, and the talent to teach each other! Separate functional electronic kits are available for $10:
