SOLDER is a dedicated hardware lab and makerspace based out of Flux. The space aims to develop a community of passionate developers that create products solving problems facing industry, society and the environment.
SOLDER is more than the physical maker space, offering access to an active community and industry connections simplifying the hardware development process.
The SOLDER Summer camp program acts as an introduction to a range of modern technologies such as 3D printing, coding and electronics that are vital skills for the future.
It is school holidays after all, so the program is run in a more relaxed setting where the 'makers' get hands on and build their own car with their own 3D printed avatar. The projects are open to allow them to drive the direction they want to go, literally. At the end of the camp, makers will get to take home their creation, and continue programming it and making different creations!
SOLDER has facilities to support part development with 3D software and printing capabilities, with an electronics development suite to match.
Developing hardware products requires time searching for reliable suppliers, manufacturers and talented individuals. SOLDER's goal is to simplify this process connecting you to the people you need when you need it.
SOLDER actively develops and engages its community by means of events, workshops and a community platform.
SOLDER prototyping lab, powered by Spacecubed, is launching a new initiative, SOLDER Scholarship, which aims to provide university students and budding technologists the opportunity to develop their hardware ideas into prototypes.
