Build an ENTS* Rocket ship with blinking lights! A great first project for anyone who’s never soldered before or for kids to do with a parent.
We will each assemble a rocket-shaped PCB, a pin clasp (so you can proudly wear it), a battery holder (with battery), two LEDs and a power switch. With lots of people around, you’ll easily find help in learning how to solder components.
You’ll end up with something that looks like this (but the lights blink and its way cooler).
A $2 donation per kit is appreciated. If we run out of kits, priority will be given to kids, but we have several.
*Thanks to our counterparts at the Edmonton New Technology Society for giving us a bunch of their boards!
