Our Unigeek badge soldering kit is the perfect companion for any budding Stemette looking to increase their STEM education. is a unique badge soldering kit and is a great kit to introduce soldering and basic electronic principles.
Finished in white and gold with a rainbow effect colour changing LED this badge looks great!
This simple kit takes 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!!!
