Requirements of the hosting spaces for Mitch's workshops

Mitch will have all of the kits with him. There is no need for anyone to purchase kits from Mitch in advance.

Each space will need to provide the following to have a successful workshop:

  • For each participant:
    • 1 soldering iron, 15W to 40W
    • 1 soldering iron stand
    • 1 cellulose (not plastic) sponge (for cleaning the soldering iron tip)
    • 1 small wire cutter (similar to 10cm wire cutters)
    • 1 or 2 AC outlets (with extension cords and/or AC power strips to make things work)
    • 1 chair
    • table space
    • enough lighting so that people can see small things while soldering


All of the above are good to have at your space so that you can continue to have soldering workshops long into the future.

  • For the Arduino For Total Newbies workshop, I also need:
    • Projector
    • Microphone and amplifier will be helpful
    • Internet (wireless or wired) is helpful
