Tory asked the other day if I could teach her how to solder, so I being the nerd Dad that I am I got a couple of kits from Evil Mad Science Labs
for the kids to assemble.
The kits are great - inexpensive, very easy to assemble, and the cartoon directions are a lot of fun.
Tory assembled a Deluxe LED Menorah
Tory's kit worked the first time we powered it up!
Katharine assembled a Larson Scanner
Katharine's kit needed a little debugging - one of the resistor leads was a little dry so one of the LED's didn't light up. Easy to fix and then it worked great!
Pretty good job for a 10-year-old's first time soldering!
