Haunted by old computer parts? Frightened by the prospect of having them go to waste? This Friday, May 13th at 7pm we’re going to break the curse of broken electronics with our first de soldering class! Come by the space and you’ll learn how to exorcise the demons that plague your old hardware by learning how to remove solder and reclaim your parts for good!
