First off, and by far most importantly, we want to take a moment to send our thoughts to those people in New Zealand who have been affected by the earthquake. We have a lot of friends in New Zealand (including our own Followr and our friends at Ponoko) and we want you all to know that our thoughts are with you.
On to a lighter note, we are offering two classes in the upcoming months that are worth checking out. The first, on March 16th, is our introduction to soldering class - PTH Soldering. In this class, you will learn the basics of through-hole soldering while creating your very own PTH Simon. We'll teach you the tips, techniques, and tools of the trade to help you get started soldering like a pro.
Then just about a month later on April 14th, we will be hosting our more advanced soldering class - SMD Soldering. This class is the perfect way to take the next step in your soldering skills. We'll teach you how to perform surface mount soldering while you create our SMD Simon Kit. This is definitely a more advanced class (with a minimum age requirement of 15) but we want to show you that you can solder SMD. We promise! Both classes include the cost of your very own Simon that you can take home. Hope to see you there!
