Every year, CETA's IEEE Student Chapter holds its most highly-anticipated workshop: Solderfest. This year, the event was back and better than ever.
Around noon on April 3rd, curious students filed into the Dana Hall electrical labs for two hours of guided instruction on circuit board assembly. Some were returning upperclassmen who enjoyed honing their skills on the provided "Brain Game" and "Cricket" practice kits. For others, this was their first time working with a hot iron and molten metal. After hard work and patient help from the IEEE officers and ECE faculty, even the least experienced were able to put together the entertaining circuits.
"Solderfest is always a big hit," recall the IEEE student officers. "Soldering is an extremely useful skill, and the kids really enjoy learning at the workshop."
CETA's IEEE Student Chapter is committed to providing quality educational events for the student body. The group hopes for another action-packed year, and urges all enthusiasts interested in helping plan events to email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about becoming an IEEE Student Officer.
