To celebrate the release of our latest publication, the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012 (and its companion website), we’re giving away at least one of the cool kits reviewed in the issue each day during the holiday season.
Today’s kit giveaway of the Learn to Solder Skill Badge may not be as glorious as some of the other items but we’re giving you 25 of them! In addition, we are throwing in a Variable Temperature Soldering Iron so you and 24 friends can learn to solder together.
It’s the perfect giveaway for hackerspaces, schools, or people that really like things that blink (a $79.99 total value.) Here is the review from the issue:
Thousands of people mastered soldering for the first time at this year’s Maker Faire events in the Maker Shed’s “Learn to Solder” tents, with the helpful coaching of Mitch Altman, Jimmie Rodgers, and dozens of other hackerspace volunteers. Participants left the Maker Shed with smiles on their faces, new skills, increased confidence, and a cool flashing LED badge to show for it. It’s the perfect gateway project kit for groups, after-school classes, or just for yourself.
