Electronics and Soldering

Our soldering station has all the basics you need to work on an electronics project – soldering iron with controllable temperature, quad hands base, and some basic tools and components to get you started. We also have boards and kits available for checkout for longer-term projects.

Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is a small computer used for DIY electronics projects, robotics, and other computing projects. This model comes with a camera you can plug in and use as well. You can check out the board for projects and then return it when you’re done. You will need a power supply for standalone projects and a computer to program it using Python.
