Learn to Solder - Build Your Own TV-B-Gone!

The MakerBar heard you like metal - now it's time to get the lead out! Use a real soldering iron to make a real project, guided by MakerBar's expert hardware hackers.

No prior experience is necessary - as long as you can tell which part of the soldering iron is the business end* you're good to go!

Come to our secret hackerspace lair, take your place at a soldering station, and get guided hands-on practice making the TV-B-Gone, the one-button universal remote that kills any television. Your ticket price includes materials - you get to take your homemade TV-B-Gone with you!

We only have ten soldering stations, so take your place while you can! This is great father-son bonding - soldering is a surprisingly safe and useful skill.

Ticket price includes all the parts you need to make your TV-B-Gone, as well as one hour of guided instruction at the MakerBar hobbyist workshop.

*It's the pointy bit. Now you have no excuse.

    This was big fun. And it could be good parent/kid bonding, too. :)
