REAL TIME WITH... IPC APEX EXPO 2019 SHOW & TELL MAGAZINE I I-CONNECT007 105 Thales Dms France SAS provided the sol- dering stations and inspection equipment. Blackfox Training Institute and others coor- dinated and supplied certified judges for the competition. In addition, on the last day of IPC APEX EXPO 2019 (Thursday), the soldering stations were used as part of IPC's STEM Student Out- reach program, which was a new addition this year. Selected students from local high schools took part in a program that delivered practical demonstrations including contemporary sol- dering skills and equipment. Then, in teams of five, the students used the soldering stations to assemble some boards themselves. From competitors to experts to novices, hand soldering and rework were heavily featured at IPC APEX EXPO 2019 and proved to be an exciting addition to the show's programs.
