The soldering workshop will be using soldering irons that are hot and can potentially burn you.  There will be a safety discussion on how best to avoid such pain, but it can happen.

If you are under 18 years old, a parent or guardian MUST sign a waiver for you.  Your parent needs to know about the risks, and this waiver ensures that they have been informed.  If they won’t sign it but you really want to attend, ask them to come along and they can learn how to solder also.
