This class will teach you to solder or help you practice your skills if they are a little rusty. We will guide you through the process of building an Arduino from a kit. Kits will be provided and in the end you will go home with your brand new DIY Arduino ready to make your project dreams come true.

Class Time: 10am-4pm (You can leave earlier if you finish soldering earlier, everyone goes at their own pace)

Class Cost: $40 (You get your own Arduino, and the skills to solder! You also get lunch (probably pizza)

Recommended Age Group: 8-99 (kids must be accompanied by adults)

• Learn to Solder (This class)

• Basic Arduino Programming (April 2nd: Arduino Day)

• Advanced Arduino Programming (TBD)

• Sensors Sensors Sensors! (TBD)

• Motor Control (TBD)

• Basic Electronics Part 2: Semiconductors and op-amps (TBD)

While attendance at one class isn’t required to attend any of the others, with this series of classes you can build your own arduino microcontroller and learn how to do cool things with it. As an added bonus, we will be providing discount codes at each class for the following classes. So, the more you learn, the more you save!
