We teach the basics of soldering to students who have little or no soldering experience. This class is meant to educate a student on proper soldering technique and tooling.
The class cost includes a Sparkfun Simon kit. If you would prefer to purchase your own kit, or not receive one, include such a message in your Meetup RSVP or post a comment.
