Lowell Makes would like to present a new learning opportunity! A soldering class has been booked for May 10th here at Lowell Makes!
If you’ve never soldered before, this is the class for you! This course teaches through-hole (90% of electronic kits) soldering and is recommended for the beginner. This is a hands-on class where the students learn techniques to help them solder through-hole components. Soldering can be daunting for the first solder joint, then the 2nd solder joint is not so bad, and by the time you’ve assembled the blinky grid, you will be quite confident and proficient in basic soldering skills.
Classes take place at Lowell Makes. We provide all the tools, irons, solder, parts, and seats for up to 10 students. The class is expected to take around 1.5 hour to complete, there is a buffer built in in case we go a bit longer.
Prerequisites: None! Just bring yourself. The class price includes the cost of the WeevilEye kit.
What to bring: Lowell Makes will provide all the tools, irons and solder.
Proceeds above will go to help support Lowell Makes.
Time and Place: Saturday May 10th from Noon to 2:00pm at the Lowell Makes
Sorry for the last minute post, but tomorrow; 04/09/2014 our regularly scheduled weekly open house from 6pm to 9pm will be a cookout as well! We will have a grill outside our door to the right and be cooking up some of the usual cookout delicacies (hotdogs, hamburgers, kielbasa).
So come join us for our weekly open house. Check out the progress on our space, meet some of the members and have some good eats!
UPDATE: Thank-you For all those who Made it to the Pi Day Party!! It was a success!! Thanks to the folks at Electronic Horizons for joining us and helping not have any leftovers. Here are some pictures from the great event!
We’re doing it again! The first one was such a success we were asked to have another one to fit in all those interested in Arduino but couldn’t make it the last time.
We got a lot of organization and moving done today, preparing the wood shop area for the builders to continue putting up the walls on Monday. Kamal, John, Sara, Mike and I moved the temporary partitions and large benches around to clear space for the construction.
