Blue Peter project kids learn how to solder!

Week 2 of our kids solar panel workshop and the participants have made their frames and learned how to solder tabbing wire to the solar cells.

We’ve been using waste cells that have been donated by our partner GB-Sol, so the young people are delighted to be re-cycling the materials!

Although soldering was very tricky, we still managed to get it all done and the steam coming off the iron impressed some of the kids.

We’re learning lots about how best to do this with young people and are grateful to each of our guinnea pigs for helping us learn how we can run similar workshops for others in the future.
