Equipment In 6th Grade Tech

I have just started middle school and I am in the Cooper house (one of the four in middle school). I am very excited to start Technology with Mr. Calvert in 6th period. So far, it is my third day here as I have started school on the fourth of September. In the tech lab, it is like a maker space room. For the projects, we are using equipment which I have used before like soldering irons, X-ACTO knives, and drill presses. I have soldered with circuits and even with a 3 x 3 LED cube. A good way to solder is to keep the iron straight and to use small amounts of solder. I think this will be fun and I look forward to creating cool projects of my interest.
