Hardware project is a place to learn all about the hardware that actually makes computers work. Whether you are interested in what goes into a gaming rig, interested in history hardware, interested in how security and hardware connect, or interested in learning the basics, we have a spot for you. The activities are chosen by the group. There’s a lot of “let’s open this up and see what we can learn,” so bring your curiosity!
Cybersecurity is a vast study area, but with the right tools you can learn skills valuable to the industry. If you haven't noticed already, much of the internet's backbone — routers, firewalls, web servers, intrusion detection systems — run on some "flavor" of Unix/Linux. So understanding how this mysterious operating system works is invaluable to a cyber professional.
Why learn about the Raspberry Pi? As a device that only costs $40 to $70, it provides a small, modularized way to experiment with Linux without risk of harming your own computer. Further, you can use a separate SD card for each project and swap them out within seconds to begin a whole new project.
