  • Photo – James Imanian, Scott Heyman and Bailey Ulferts (hidden) help visitors get buggy!
  • Short Video – And the bug flies, or at least buzzes around!  Best of all, the visitors have learned a new skill–how to solder!!!
  • One visitor asked if someone would show him how to solder the lead to the rear-window heater in his car, which had been ripped away by an over-eager child.  It was tempting, but the thought of offering to apply a hot soldering iron to a cold $600 piece of glass was more that the ‘Learn to Solder’ program was intended to do!  (Any takers?)

The contents of the prior WIE Website is captured below and presently undergoing edit — please bear with us as we transition from the past to the present, from the environment to the one.  We don’t want to lose the good work of our predecessors, so the captured elements have been converted to WordPress format and are ready for edit, reference or archive.  Beware, some of this material includes ‘hot-links’ which may render an error as the upgrade takes place.  However, the contents of those broken links has been captured in the additional pages below–so nothing is lost.  We are looking for a Webmaster, so if you have an inkling for such a responsibility adventure, please let us know.  We learned it ‘on-the-fly’, and now it is ready for a more professional presentation.
