Soldering: Alchemy for Makers
Presented by: Jameson Hampton
Soldering is like alchemy? What does that mean??
Soldering is the most basic building block for building electronics. If you’ve ever looked inside a computer, you probably saw a bunch of circuit boards with a bunch of electronics stuff attached to them. Each of those pieces was soldered to the board: it’s a process of joining electronic parts together by heating up metal and melting it around the parts.
Learning how to solder is the first step to learning how to build any electronics. And it’s not hard to do! In this workshop, we’ll go over the basics of soldering, learn how to do it safely, and do our first soldering together! Each participant will make a badge with an LED that will light up and let everyone know that they know how to solder!
