In our YEOT (Young Engineers of Today) program that we are running we are teaching students the basics of soldering(videos and tips coming soon). Once we have them exposed to techniques of soldering we provide the students with the challenge of their first project of soldering together an adjustable power supply kit from Adafruit(link below).
We chose this project because it will force them to learn how to solder small spaces, but not being too difficult. Additionally, the students can then use this device for their other projects along the way. Below is the series of videos I shot with my Google Glass to help you follow the instructions on the Adafruit site. I shot these videos to help those who like video as well as working on improvements of my skill for Google Glass video.
Here are the videos along with my journey to make it work.
