Mitch Teaching Henry Ford

I was recently at Maker Faire Detroit, which was a blast. Mitch Altman and I, along with some great volunteers, taught around 1,500 people to solder during the event. It was really great, and I always love Maker Faires. People are always just so excited to be there, and love to make things.

Since we were in the area, we’re going through the mid-west, and even up into Canada for a short stint. At the moment we are in Toronto, and will be running two workshops in the next two days. Mitch has posted a full schedule up on the Noisebridge blog, but here it is as well:
