Soldering Workshops

We will resume workshops when COVID-19 is not the concern it is at this time. 

When the pandemic is over, we will be delighted to offer drop-in soldering lessons for the UVM community again. Students, faculty and staff are invited to participate.

All participants shall have completed the UVM online ‘Soldering Safety Training’ course prior to participation in the workshop, available in the Specific Hazards section of UVM Online Safety Training.

We’ll have a variety of kits available and our FabLab technicians (Fabbers) are enthusiastic about sharing this skill. This is for those who have never soldered before and beginners who want more practice.

Goal: By the end of the workshop, you will understand the basics of soldering safety, theory, and application. We hope you will be able to implement this new skill in your future projects and use this workshop as a starting point to advance your knowledge of soldering.

Soldering Workshop Topics:

  • Safety: Learn the hazards of soldering and how to solder safely.
  • Theory: Learn about soldering and how to solder correctly.
  • Application: Apply what you have learned and complete a functional soldering kit!

*Please arrive early as workshops are capped at 10 people.
