It's about time for Atlanta Mini Maker Faire 2013 (10/26). LearnToSolder.org and Freeside Atlanta are once again hosting a free Learn to Solder tent. Last year's tent was a huge success, teaching around 100 kids (aged 4 to 80) how to solder together a basic electronic kit. This year, we hope to double that number, but we need help!
got all the supplies, irons, solder, project kits, helping hands, band
aids and burn gel. What we need are volunteers to supervise and mentor
the kids in constructing the kits. These kits are simple, and designed
for first timers, but gives them something they can be proud of and show
off. You're there to help troubleshoot (solder bridges, cold joints),
teach (show them how to do the first joint), and supervise (make sure
they know which end of the iron is the hot one), etc.
Sign up for a shift (as many as you want!) today!
