A Soldering Iron Guide for Kids

Posted by - November 9, 2016
Every kid should try out soldering. Get a maker badge or a simple learn to solder kit. If you do, start small and don't spend too much on the first project. My first little soldering iron was almost completely destroyed by the time I learned how to clean and tin and take care of it. Knowing which iron to get and which iron to use seems like it might be confusing, but it's not so tough. If you know a kid who is already a maker, who is still using their first iron from a kit? Upgrade them sooner rather than later.

Maker Faire 2016

Posted by - October 16, 2016
Recently I attended this year's 2016 Maker Faire here in New York City, and it was really cool. It was also really big. I expected maybe a row of tents with big companies like radio shack, Vellman, Pi, Evil Mad Scientist, and others., and yes they were there, but there were also many smaller companies, news ones, cool and unheard of ones. It made the faire really really big. I had some interesting conversations at all the booths and I had a Maker Faire photographer follow me the entire time. I met a kid who made his own robot and had it wandering around. I made new friends, and new projects. In all I Loved maker faire 2016 and I hope I get invited to go to maker fair next year. You learn so much from maker faire. It is really like comicon, but for makers like me.
