Day of the Geek STEM Education Product – Soldering Badge Kit Range
Learning to solder is an important skill for any budding engineer, hence we have created a range of practical STEM education soldering product ‘s to make this a fun learning experience. Because this is such a vital skill we have also created the Soldering for Beginners course within our Learning Academy. Enrole Today!
Our Day of the Geek range is one of our most popular STEM education products, aimed at getting people of all ages picking up soldering irons and into making. The inspiration for our Geeky Day of the Geek soldering badge kit came from Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead.
We’ve taken the Day of the Dead motif, then given it our full geek flavour for a fun and educational STEM/STEAM experience, but our favourite part of the design is the Ohms Law Nose.
This simple kit will take approximately 5 to 15 minutes to assemble with only basic soldering skills and equipment. We’ve designed these kits so that anyone aged 5 and upwards can build them, although young people should always be supervised when using Soldering Irons. Because these can be or at least should be very HOT!!!

Our good friends at Adafruit and at Sparkfun have each created these great video tutorials of our Day of the Geek badge kits. If you need further help though you can call our free tech support line. Because we understand that there is no such thing a stupid question.
Proto-Pic are all about education, making, creating and we stock a wide range of STEM education product ‘s. That is why we love to follow the tweets online and find out who’s wearing our cool badge’s. Hint hint!
