Skill Builder: Learn to Solder with the Educato

  • 5000

Tuesday November 13, 6 to 9pm

Learn the basics of soldering and circuit design with the Modern Device Educato Kit.  The price of the workshop covers the cost of the kit being built, soldering equipment is also provided. We will be assembling an Educato Kit: an Arduino-compatible microcontroller that is perfect for beginners and prototyping new projects. This is a one-shot class covering each component used in assembly, the layout of the board, and troubleshooting to ensure proper assembly.  

Participants will leave with soldering skills and a fancy new tool to add to their arsenal of creativity. With this knowledge, you will also be able to make simple repairs on electronics that were once thought broken for good. 

Instructor: Katie Gradowski
