Product Design Direction: Solder Pins

The Learn to Solder Pins are simple soldering activity kits that teach basic soldering skills, awarding the consumer with a working, blinking, wearable pin once complete. John Viet-Triet Nguyen illustrated these based on sketches for our launch at Maker Faire Bay Area in 2014. It was such a treat to see kids and adults alike wearing their proud badges of accomplishment!

The Learn to Solder Pins are simple soldering activity kits that teach basic soldering skills, awarding the consumer with a working, blinking, wearable pin once complete.
Based on imagery and characters from the World Maker Faire and Maker Faire Bay Area, the pins connect the physical experience of the Faire with a new skill. Parents and children alike find the experience of soldering their first project a rewarding experience.
