I’ll be at Maker Faire this weekend and on Saturday afternoon will be at the Hardware Hacking Area, teaching people how to solder. The rest of the time I’ll be wandering around or camped out at the Noisebridge table, poking at the 3-D makerbot printers and learning more about them.
We went to Noisebridge last weekend and practiced soldering with Mitch Altman, who said last year he and volunteers taught around 3000 people to use a soldering iron. There are kits to make a little MakerFaire badge with a blinky light. Moomin learned how to make them and then practiced teaching me how. I’m always impressed with how clear his explanations are!
Anyway, if you’re at the fair, come and say hi!
