Surface Mount Prototyping Workshop

UMass Alum Chris Montoya will be joining us in M5 for a surface mount prototyping workshop, using a reflow oven! This is an excellent opportunity to get some hands on experience working with surface mount electronics, and to speak with a knowledgeable engineer working in the field. We will dive right into the workshop and then have time to ask any other general questions.
