Soldering

skills
Soldering is the process of joining different kinds of metal together by melting what is called ‘solder’. Solder is a metal alloy that is made of tin and can be melted by using a hot iron. By doing so, we can connect different electronic components to each other in a circuit in order to make an electronic device. Sounds cool right!? If you want to learn this neat skill, get crackin’ by making our soldering kits!

A soldering kit can be a cool and simple gadget like blinking lights, an electronic dice, a brain game, and so on. Or it can also be something very practical like an alarm, an audio project, etc. BE sure to look at the whole list!

Looking for a cool STEM project, look no further! These kits are ideal for workshops for children and grown-ups alike. Plus, you can find lots of tutorials about soldering on our website.

SKILL LEVELDESCRIPTION
level 1You know what a soldering iron looks like, but you have not used it before. The level 1 soldering kits include a limited number of basic, through-hole components and you only need to solder on one side of the PCB. Yes, you are allowed to Google ‘through-hole components’. A nicely illustrated manual is also included in the kit.

level 2You have already soldered a few level 1 soldering kits, but you could still use some help. At this point, you will have to solder more through-hole components and there might be some tricky ones.

level 3You can solder our gadgets successfully without any help and you are looking for a kit with more challenges like soldering on both sides of the PCB and assembling special components.

View all level 3 products.

level 4You can solder through-hole components with your eyes closed or you want to try out SMD soldering. At this level, the space between components is small and you may need to use tweezers.

level 5You can solder SMD components behind your back and soldering PCB- or LED constructions does not give you nightmares. You live for this!
