Soldering at Makerfaire and beyond!

What a great turnout at Maker Faire 2017 last weekend! A big shout out to all the awesome organisers, this is one of the best events of the year in Vancouver, hands down!

We taught kids of all ages to solder, as young as 4, and as old as 80! For those following along at home (we have take-home kits!), here’s the how to solder comic we use, as well as the guide to our VHS Blinky Badge kit. There are usually a few kits at VHS in the vending machine if you’d like to give this project a try.

Want to know how the circuit works?
Check out the Falstad simulator version for a pretty visual representation, or read some words about it here!

Not a member or keyholder? Feel free to swing by on any of our open nights. You can use our soldering stations and teach yourself how to solder. We’ll give you a hand if you need one. See you at the space!
