Soldering Bike Lights Workshop

There will be a soldering workshop/competition at the U of C on March 30th. It costs $20 (which is refunded when you attend the workshop) and you will learn how to make a tail light for your bike.

You can either purchase the light or it will be donated to The Good Life at the end of the workshop.
