SMD Soldering Class - August 17th

The SMD Soldering Class is our very popular course that teaches SMD soldering to anyone who thinks they can't possibly solder those little pins. This will be a hands-on class where the students learn techniques to help them solder surface mount components.

Classes take place within SparkFun. We provide all the tools, irons, solder, parts, and seats for 20 to 30 students. You'll be soldering the SMD Simon Kit together. By the end of the night, you will have a functioning game to take home and show off to your friends (we get funny looks all the time).

There is a minimum age requirement of 15 years old, and it is highly recommended that you have a strong background in soldering, as basic soldering skills will not be covered. It is highly recommended that you be comfortable with soldering, although you don't necessarily need to be an expert. And if you know your way around an iron, we may even be able to show you some advanced tips and tricks (flux, wicking, hot-air rework, etc).

We scheduled the class within the end of the workday so that you can beat traffic. Class starts promptly at 6PM!

**Prerequisites: **You should have a good familiarity with soldering in general.

**What to bring: **Maybe a bite to eat. The class can run past 8PM. SparkFun will provide all the tools, irons and solder.

Date: August 17th
Time: 6PM to around 8PM
Instructors: TBA!

  • Hey...do you make any recording of those classes? I live in New Jersey and I believe that I will not make it on time :)

  • Too bad I don't live in Colorado. This class happens right on my birthday. :/
