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.
