Details

Learn to assemble circuit boards with an iron and solder. This class is required before you can use the soldering irons at Robot Garden.

Free for members (kit cost may apply, see below)

$10 for non-members.

A soldering kit is required for this class. You can purchase one of our stock kits from our store or in person at the time of the class. If you have your own basic (through hole, not surface mount) soldering project, it’s also possible to bring that in but please seek instructor approval first. A future course will cover surface mount (SMT) soldering.
