Learn to Solder Workshop

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are behind most of today’s displays and lighting designs. Learn about LEDs, how to design with them, and how to teach others to build a /solderless/ LED ‘Torch’ from the IET and then how to /solder/ an LED Badge from the LEarn to Solder Booth at World Maker Fiare NY during this 65 minute session. Materials and tools are available for up to 15 attendees. Limited numbers of additional parts kits will be available for purchase.

Presented by again this year by Dr. Charles Rubenstein who has been the IEEE volunteer coordinator for the Learn to Solder Booth at the World Maker Faire New York (WMFNY) for the past five years and has curated and coordinated the IEEE Booth at WMFNY for the past seven years. Rubenstein, a professor of engineering and technology at Pratt Institute and Farmingdale State College (SUNY), is also the Chair of the IET (Instiution for Engineering and Technology) New England Network – a northeastern US group of one of IEEE’s sister societies. Fellow IEEE NY Section officer Bob Pellegrino who has also served as a Learn to Solder Coach at the WMFNY will assist as he did last year.
