empowering creative people

Maker Projects® is what compels makers to learn, design and create! We're all about electronics projects here at Core Electronics and have made it as easy as possible for other makers to share their projects with us and the broader community. Every project listed here was built by our community of electronics enthusiasts and include desk gadgets, practical solutions for around the home, or widgets built for no other reason than "just because” (often the most fun kind of project!)

Share your project today and get rewarded with a minimum $50 store credit. Yep, you read right!

FYI, the projects module is brand new, even more reason to get involved and share your project as we'd love to see a wall of great builds below!
