SparkFun to Host Electronics Workshops at Boulder Headquarters During July and August

BOULDER, Colo. July 13, 2011


SparkFun shares its passion for electronics by providing parts, knowledge, and innovation for those looking to explore the world of embedded electronics. It helps anyone discover their inner inventor and enables individuals to create their own electronics projects.


SparkFun loves to teach people the skills they need to start exploring the world of embedded electronics on their own. During July and August, SparkFun will conduct the following workshops:

Stenciling Class – July 14, 2011, 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Solder Stenciling is a method of soldering that SparkFun regularly uses in its production process to solder tiny surface mount components. In this class, attendees will learn the tricks, techniques, and tools that are necessary to perform solder stenciling at home. Taught by SparkFun’s own stenciling-gurus, this class will help those in attendance move beyond the limitations of the soldering iron.

Exciting XBee Series 1 – July 23, 2011, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Exciting XBee Series 1 Class is the first SparkFun workshop that explores the XBee communication protocol. During this class, attendees will get an introduction to XBee Series 1 components and commands as well as explore the basics of going wireless. At the end of the class, each person will have completed two projects – a wireless doorbell and an Arduino-based midway-style horse race.

Exciting XBee Series 2 – July 24, 2011, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Exciting XBee Series 2 workshop explores all the power of the XBee Series 2 Radios. Attendees will get an introduction to the components and commands necessary to use XBee Series 2 and at the end of the day will have the knowledge to free their project from the servitude of wires. This class is the second of two workshops exploring the XBee communication protocol.

Summer Semester – August 15, 2011 – August 19, 2011, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This five-day electronics-palooza will help attendees who have an idea for an electronics project make it a reality. This workshop covers napkin schematics, working with datasheets, Arduino programming, soldering, e-textile basics, PCB layout with Eagle, using XBee wireless communication, and incorporating GPS.

PTH Soldering – August 22, 2011, 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

In this class, attendees will learn the basics of soldering plated through-hole (PTH) components. SparkFun instructors will lead the class as they learn the basics techniques and tools for doing PTH soldering at home.
