Erik Thompson of Low Voltage Labs – manufacturers of some awesome do-it-yourself tech – lead an engaging lesson on the art of soldering Tuesday night at the Vancouver Community Library. Erik (and son?) taught the group the basics of soldering as participants put together Makey Robot – Learn to Solder Skill Badges.
The Fort Vancouver Regional Library has been making an effort to bring technology to the citizens of Vancouver. Alongside tonights soldering class, the library has recently hosted a “Coding Academy – Hour of Code” in which it taught and encouraged individuals to learn to code, and Maker’s groups which have been focused heavily upon the Arduino microcontroller. Next Tuesday, the Vancouver Community Library will host the class “ArtBots” in which participants will “Deconstruct common household objects to create your own drawing robot!”
Tech classes are only small portion of all the awesome things that are going on at the Fort Vancouver Regional Library. Checkout the FVRL’s Event page for more great events coming to your local library branch!
