Learning and practicing basic soldering techniques and electronic circuitry.

Teaching younger students how to safely and properly use important laboratory instruments, such as the soldering iron, continuity testers, and wire strippers.

Organizing fairs for parents to learn to repair toys themselves, thus speeding up the toy repair and diagnosis process.

Preparing kits for parents of disabled kids to repair toys themselves.

Identifying and modifying new toys, games and devices for library; for example, adding simple functionality such as switch activation through adding a button switch that is easier to turn on.
