    If you’ve never soldered before, this is the class for you! SparkFun Electronics has been teaching soldering a lot over the past few years – the Simon PTH kit is a combination of everything we’ve learned. This course teaches through-hole soldering and is recommended for the true beginner. This will be a hands-on class where the students learn techniques to help them solder through-hole components. Soldering can be daunting for the first solder joint, then the 2nd solder joint is not so bad, and by the time you’ve assembled the Simon game, you will be quite confident and proficient in basic soldering skills.

    There is a minimum age requirement of 8 years old, but other than that, anyone is encouraged to sign up. We teach people all the time with no previous soldering experience!

    Note: This workshop requires separate $10 registration which includes the cost of the Simon Kit that you can take home with you afterwards. Register early to reserve your seat as capacity is limited!

      The synergy between developers, business people, and teachers makes POSSCON pretty unique, I haven't really seen this anywhere else.

      It was very nicely run and I think you did a bang-up job. You should all be proud of what you did.

      This is like nothing you've ever seen before.  You can look at the pictures, you can watch the videos... but just like a concert, you have to be there.
