A look back at 2021 and whats to come in 2022!
Happy New Year from Learn to Solder Kits!
2021 was a year of massive growth and success for our team, and we are eager to see what 2022 has in store for us. Before we talk about what we are looking forward to, let's take a look back at what made the previous year so special.
Learn to Solder Kits by the numbers:
- 8,939 Kits Shipped in 2021 (WOW!)
- Most popular kit: Jitterbug
- Most popular kit for educators: Blink
Our biggest update of the year was the release of Hue 2.0. We improved the board layout by using a hexagon instead of a rectangle, and we switched to using an easier-to-turn and less expensive potentiometer. This provides creators with a better experience at a cost of $13.99 instead of $15.99!
Our First Employee
Kim joined our team in March, making her our first ever employee! She works to package and ship our kits. Bringing her on board allowed us to lower our shipping time by one business day, even during the holiday rush. Thank you so much, Kim!
What’s Next in 2022
We will continue our mission of supporting makers at all points in their journey. By emphasizing educators' roles in bringing the power of making to their students, we can help grow the interest in STEM-related projects, just like we did with John Sorvillo.
Thank you for an amazing year! We can’t wait to see what everyone builds and learns in 2022 😁
