Get a Flashing LED Robot kit from the Maker Shed and learn to solder with robotic style. This unique flashing Robot will not only help you learn good soldering techniques but will also be the center of attention wherever it is placed! The eyes, center LED and both hand LEDs flash brightly for weeks continuously or for months when you turn it off at the end of the day.
Consists of 2 circuit boards and various electronic parts that you solder to the boards. You first solder the non-functional components in to learn good soldering techniques, then you progress to the functional LEDs. Simple to build and can be customized to make unlimited variations (you can paint the boards before assembly, pose the arms and eyes, change the appearance of the antenna, etc.)!

The 3 1/2″ tall x 7/8″ wide Learn to Solder Robot uses one 9V battery (not included) which also allows it to stand on just about anything (keyboards, monitors, desks, books, etc.). Unique design incorporates the battery into the robot. Simple to build! Note: Contains Lead Solder Plating. Recommended for Ages 13 and up.
