Soldering basics

Soldering is a really useful skill that's easy to learn, and actually kinda fun.

Soldering is a process/technique in which two components are joined together by melting a small bit of filler metal (solder) between them until it cools. It's one of the most important and often-used processes in the assembly of electronics, and it can often be used to completely repair broken fans, lamps, computer mice, or other electronics.

In this workshop you'll receive a free soldering kit with the components you'll need to create a small electronic device. After going over the basic technique of soldering, you'll practice using the soldering kit until it's complete, with help from Studio assistants along the way.
