Volunteers at the SVEC booth demonstrated IR thermography and a laser wood cutter. Volunteering at SVEC booth got them a day pass to Maker Faire for our undying gratitude.

Many thanks to Kevin Gregerson providing use of the laser wood cutter and James Hungerford for loaning camera to us to demonstrate infrared thermography.

“Learn to Solder” Booth volunteers

Thanks to other volunteers that helped teach others how to solder. Working for a shift as an instructor in the Learn to Solder booth was one of the most popular activities at the Faire. They received entry to Maker Faire plus some additional perks. As a helper in the Learn to Solder booth, they assisted attendees in soldering their own pin from a kit. It’s very basic and didn’t need much or any experience in soldering. The most important requirements are patience and comfort teaching people of all ages.
