If you are interested in using the technology and resources in the Hackerspace but don’t know where to begin, take a look at some of the following starter projects. If you would like more guidance, take a look at our Workshops page, send us an email at, or come to the space  for in-person guidance.

Starter Project Ideas:

Arduino Mega 2560 Kit

Here are some resources we find helpful in learning how to use some of the technologies available at the Hackerspace:


Tinkercad is a free, browser-based 3D modeling software. It has easy tutorials to explain the fundamentals of how shapes come together to create 3D models. In just a few minutes, you can have a model ready to print!


Adafruit is a great website both for ordering Arduino boards and sensors, and for learning how to use them. They offer many videos which explain how to get started with code and make working with new sensors easy.

Raspberry Pi:

Raspberry Pi’s website offers courses that explain how to work through a number of larger development projects. This includes: introductions to robotics, networking, web development, python, and more!


Instructables is a free, open-source online catalog of projects with step-by-step guides. Most of the guides come with source code, project files, and everything else you would need to test out a project in the Hackerspace. 


Hackspace Magazine:

Hackspace Magazine is a subscription that includes tons of interesting projects for various toolkits. They cover Arduino, Raspberry Pi, robotics, and more! Keep up to date with what people are doing with the latest versions of the technologies and try out some of the projects yourself! Their website also offers a number of their articles and how-to’s for free.
