Firstly, a huge thanks to http://www.pocketmoneytronics.co.uk for sending me Eric the Easy-to-solder Robot. I want to introduce a soldering project to my Raspberry Pi club at school and Eric will be the starting point.
Eric comes from Andrew Gale who also made the awesome Raspberry Pi LED Christmas tree at the end of last year.
Eric is relatively simple to solder with 13 joints to solder. This is a great first project for students to start with. The majority of the soldering joints are well spaced apart and are easy to reach. The price for the kit (around £2) is very reasonable.
