Step 1: Check That You Have Everything
The parts required to assemble this shield are included in the kit but it is important to make sure that you have everything before starting.
You should have:
1 X Printed Circuit Board
1 X 6 Way Stacking Header
2 X 8 Way Stacking Headers
1 X 10 Way Stacking Header
Step 2: Add the Headers
Push the headers through the board.
The white writing should be on the top of the board.
Step 3: Solder the Joints
Flip the board so that the weight of the board holds the pins in place. The holes through the board are tight enough that they should remain straight but the weight of the board should ensure this.
Solder the header pins into place.
Step 4: Enjoy Prototyping
Assemble your circuit on the board and enjoy.
