I got a subscription to this to do with my son (he’s almost 8). It’s really fun! I’ve never soldered anything so we are learning together. So far we just did a basic board that’s a robot’s face with blue LED eyes. We soldered all the components (resistors, switches, battery holder, LEDs) to the board and it actually worked hah. He’s better at it than I am.

Once we finish the “robots” we have a synth to make which seems pretty fun.


very cool! even cooler that you spending quality time with your son!

I had to learn to solder for my job when I started it back in 2008. its a very handy skill to have. I’m “ok” at it, but my boss, man, he does some really fine work. I stick to nothing below 22 gauge wire, haha!

have fun!
