This maker bundle gives you the skills to fill your time at home with fun electronics projects

From RC cars to cryptocurrency mining machines.

Boredom is becoming a familiar figure in our lives right now. Although there are many ways to pass the day—gaming, reading, watching films, listening to music—most of these activities are pretty passive. For anyone with an active mind, it’s better to find something a little more engaging.

Taking on a DIY project is one way to keep boredom at bay. The 2020 Complete Raspberry Pi & Arduino A-Z Hero Maker Bundle helps you get started, with 96 hours of training on computing, programming, coding, and electronics. For a limited time, you can get the bundle for just $22.50 when you use code 70LEARN at the PopSci Shop.

The Raspberry Pi microcomputer and Arduino microcontroller have transformed the maker scene over the past few years. With nine video courses and two e-book guides, this bundle shows you how to harness the power of both platforms.

Through concise tutorials, you discover how to control components with code and start building your own devices. Your instructor is Peter Dalmaris, an IT lecturer with 13 years of experience in education. Here are some of the courses:
