A fantastic parent/child bonding opportunity. Learning to solder opens a huge world of inventive possibilities and telling your friends you held a 300 degree C “pencil” is pretty cool. Each child receives a kit that contains all of the parts they need to create an LED-based project. Most consist of a battery holder, battery and 1-5 LEDs. Participants need to solder between 4 and 10 points. Soldering irons and instruction are provided by TinkerTruck but this requires direct and constant supervision and therefore is best suited as a parent/child activity. Parents will learn this skill as well.
* Minimum supervision ratio is based on the children’s ages but is typically 2:1 or 3:1. Pricing depends on staff required to meet these ratios, but parent volunteers can reduce the costs substantially.
