Soldering Workshop – Level 1

Makerspace Nanaimo and BC Robotics will be hosting two level 1 soldering workshops.

When: Saturday, September 26th @ 1:00pm and 3:00pm
Where: 2221 McGarrigle Road, Makerspace Nanaimo

In this workshop we will be learning how to solder a blinky light. This will include identifying each of the components, locating where they go on the circuit board, and soldering them in place.


Makerspace Spotlight

It seems like we are asked on a daily basis if we know of any Makerspace near *somewhere*. It got us thinking around the office – perhaps we should write a little blurb every week about a Makerspace and help spread the word! This week we will be starting with Vancouver Hack Space (or very cleverly shortened to “VHS”)
