What can I learn about with this solder kit?

Learn how they are connected in a circuit and get practical experience soldering them. Two open chassis subminiature motors control the movement and speed the bug travels at and the LDRs (light dependent resistors) control the direction based on how much light they detect. You can use the potentiometer to alter the light sensitivity of the bug. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder and may require wire cutters and a file.

How easy is this kit to solder?
Simple to solder, this kit is great for those looking to progress beyond beginner projects. Have fun putting together your kit then you can expand on your project.
