Learn to Solder Badge Skill Kit

Solder Badge

Maker Shed has these neat, inexpensive kits available now:

“Our exclusive Learn to Solder Skill Badge Kit has been used to teach thousands of people of all ages how to solder at Maker Faires across the country. It’s a simple, fun way to learn how to solder or teach others to solder. Once complete, you’ll have a great blinky robot that you can proudly wear and when people ask where you got it, you get to reply “I made it!” This well thought out pin even has the directions written right on the back for easy reference. This is the best kit to learn to solder with. Just ask anyone who’s been to a Maker Faire! ”
