Monthly Maker Workshop – Soldering with Arduino Kits


This is isn’t your grandad’s soldering class. These makers not only learned to solder, but they did it by building a complete working Arduino. The Freeduino kit was the perfect intro to soldering projects. Plus its a gateway to Arduino itself. Workshop attendees learned about different types of solder wire, how to apply it, solder suckers, temperature control, and trouble shooting. This was a phenomenal workshop. Keep your eyes open for more workshops like this over at our meetup page.

HackRVA along with RVA Maker Guild created the Little Free Library outside the space. We’re internationally listed here.

Little Free Libraries are a variation on a tried and true concept of “Take a book, leave a book.” Books are free for anyone to take and read. Or you can leave books for others. No strings attached! So come by and take our books. Please, we have so many!
