Regular Programs
Soldering

Dive into the fun side of electronics and create and KEEP your own LED Fun project. When you think of a TV, Tablet, Smart Phone and a Car – what do they have in common? Printed Circuit Boards! They are at the heart of most electronics – consumer products, telecommunications, food-processing and the automotive industries.

You will learn basic soldering techniques each session. In this hands-on workshop we will guide you step-by-step so that you gain a deeper understanding of how circuit boards are put together.

  • 3 hour workshops
