Makelab Charleston welcomes Jackie Duchene, a faculty member at Trident Technical College, to teach a basic course in soldering! The course will cover basic techniques and all participants will have the opportunity to solder together a kit they can take home. This clasSpecific techniques to be taught will be circuit-board soldering, wire to component soldering, and wire to wire soldering. Basic safety and concerns will be discussed as well. The class should take two to three hours depending on the students. The cost of the class will be $15 per person.
