Our Learn to Solder Simon Says Soldering Kit is a great beginner’s kit and a fun toy. All components are through-hole, making this kit a great place to start when you’re learning to solder or for teaching someone who’s just learning. It includes all the basic soldering tools that you’ll need to put it together and a Beginning Soldering Handbook that walks you through the basics of making a solid solder connection. When building this kit, you’ll have a chance to solder a 28-pin microprocessor, LEDs, battery clips and more.
After you have successfully assembled the kit, you will have a greater knowledge of through-hole soldering and the tools, techniques, and terminology required to populate your own PCB prototype. You will have a development platform with 5 outputs (LEDs and buzzer), 5 inputs (buttons), and serial for debugging. And, of course, you’ll have your very own Simon game! Assembly time varies, but for a true beginner with no soldering experience, the kit can take 20-40 minutes to assemble.
