Soldering and Welding

Back by popular demand for our Spring session! In this introductory metal course, girls will learn the basics of soldering, welding, and engraving through small electrical projects and steel projects. Over 6 weeks, we will come to understand how circuits and conduction make metal work possible, work with a soldering iron to construct small working metal circuit systems, practice multiple types of welds to make functional objects, and engrave our own metal tools. We will also talk about various metal finishing techniques including grinding, filing, and coatings.
