STEAM513: Youth Soldering and Basic Electronics- Make a TrashAMP!

THIS COURSE IS FOR YOUTH AGES 8-17 ONLY!

Learn how to use solder and a soldering iron to make small stick figures, as well as how to solder electronic "through-hole" components for electronic printed circuit board assembly (PCBs).

In this class, you will learn basic solder and flux types, safe soldering practices, and soldering iron maintenance. You will learn to de-solder using various techniques, including a "solder sucker" tool or solder braid.

In addition, solder together your own TrashAMP- a unique portable speakers for your smartphone, electric guitar, and more!
