Learn to Solder - Maker Fest 2015

The makers were here again in Penang at sPICE arena on 14-15th Nov 2015 for the Penang Maker Fest after we had the Penang Mini Maker Faire last year.  More stuffs, more things, more excitement and more crowds. How can I run away from organizing the Learn to Solder workshop after we had good response last year. However this year, I made it simpler while making it more fun and exciting for everyone to solder. Luckily this year I had more volunteers also to help me out in coaching the enthusiastic visitors to solder. The volunteers were great and tirelessly helping from 10am to 7pm on both days until we ran out of boards. Thanks to Motorola Solutions Penang and Penang Science Cluster for sponsoring the parts and PCB. I will let the picture below speaks to you.
