In Technology, we are making pendants. In order to make pendants, we need to use a soldering iron. A soldering iron takes a wire and melts it because the tip of a soldering iron is over 300 degrees Fahrenheit. It is basically a hot glue gun, but hotter. Using it was quite fun. I got to watch metal melt.
In the future, I hope to solder more. I am looking forward to soldering circuits in class. My father says he has soldered things with a big torch. He was making an electrocardiogram with metal pipes to listen to his heartbeat.
