Soldering Our Class Together

Help me give my students soldering iron kits and solder to help us become Makers and Breakers!

My Students

As a STEM teacher, I have the opportunity to work with hundreds of students through the school year. The students with whom I work come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of needs which must be met on a daily basis. But despite these needs, my students persist and challenge themselves to grow and to learn.

These students have so many hardships and setbacks with the odds stacked against them, and yet these students are amazing thinkers and creators.

I wish to foster this creativity in my students by providing them with unique opportunities that will allow them to take risks in the classroom that will ultimately lead them to become stronger problem solvers in the real world when they are adults.

My Project

My students are constantly looking for new tools to use that will help them better understand the world they live in. With the addition of the Elenco Maker Soldering Iron Kits and solder, my students can begin to understand how buildings are constructed. The students will be able to discover how soldering has affected their every day lives in addition to being exposed to how to solder. I cannot wait to expose my students to soldering in the classroom!

We have upcoming lessons about structures and building.

These soldering kits will help my students learn valuable hands-on skills that will ultimately prepare them for real world problem solving.
