Learn the basics of soldering by building a color changing light for your bike spoke. Participants will be given a circuit board and walked through the process of soldering through-hole (bigger and easy to solder) components to that board.

During the activity we will discuss each component and their role in making the device function.

Each participant will leave with one finished bike light board. The bike light color can be customized by configuring switches on the board or using a tilt switch to make the color dependent on the device orientation.

This two day course is designed as an introduction to many of the tools and skills that can be taught and learned in a school Fab Lab or Makerspace. The items to be covered have been selected because they can most readily be implemented in a school environment, and typically do not overlap with a school's existing Career & Technical Education program.

Attendants will be given time to work with these devices themselves, and be able to take away samples and experiences.

Induction heating is a non-contact process which uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to produce heat in a workpiece. By placing a conductive material into a strong alternating magnetic field, electric current is made to flow in the material, thereby causing Joule heating. In magnetic materials, further heat is generated below the Curie point due to hysteresis losses.

Using the induction forge, basic hammer techniques, and hand tools, students will cut, twist, taper, bend and smash steel into either a wizard wand or a BBQ fork of their own design.
