    Practical Engineering Projects


    Whilst my background is certainly not engineering (I'm much more computer/data science and social science oriented) I was wondering whether anybody could please suggest suitable engineering projects at home?

    I am fairly practical (I assembled a rocket kit during the lockdown and I recently changed the brake shoes on my rear drum brakes).

    Any pointers on where I would go next, please?

    I am using the brilliant app to learn the theory so I guess I'm looking for practical experience to increase my skills and knowledge.

    Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

    Do something with the new Rasberry PI circuit board. There are kit projects that you can build to learn.
