can you please advise if there is a unassembled version of arduino uno or mega. we want students to get some soldering experience at the same time as learning how to use the boards

The Menta is an Arduino-compatible kit. It is based on the same processor as an UNO and accepts all the same shields:

We also have the Metro (another UNO compatible) available without headers. Not quite as much soldering to do there:

Just a note that the Menta does not have a built-in USB interface. Quoting from the product page: "You'll also need an FTDI adapter such as the FTDI Friend or FTDI Cable to program it via the Arduino IDE."
