The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Learning Electronics Merit Badges

Craft & Design Yarncraft


Merit badges are a long-standing tradition, so I’m glad to see Adafruit Industries keeping up with the times:

“Learning electronics” merit badges from Adafruit Industries – In a week or so we will be including “learning electronics” merit badges in some of our kits & tool packs at Adafruit Industries. The first one is “learning to solder” – if you’re new to electronics, we’ll have a special bundle of tools, a kit and limited edition “badge” to show the world you’re proficient in soldering, once you complete the tutorials and kit that is!
