TWEEN/TEEN - MKR LAB - Build a Lighthouse: Intro to soldering

Grades:  5-12

Registration Closes: Friday, June 1st

Learn basic soldering skills by building a mini lighthouse. Soldering is a way to permanently attach electrical components with melted metal. Students will use lead-free solder to attach a battery holder, resistors, transistors, capacitors, a power switch and an LED. They can change the value of the resistors to change the flashing pattern and create an occulting lighthouse.
