 You can also check out equipment (for free!) at the front desk, including Raspberry Pis, motors, Beaglebones,​ solder practice kits, USB cables, and several types of Arduinos. The loan period is two weeks, and can be renewed at the end of the time period. Other supplies, including circuit components, electrical wire, and solder, can be found near the workstations. You can also check out equipment (for free!) at the front desk, including Raspberry Pis, motors, Beaglebones,​ solder practice kits, USB cables, and several types of Arduinos.

 +There are also lockers available for checkout at the front desk. If you have a big project, or don't want to carry a project back home each day then you may want to consider getting a locker. A PI at the front desk can get you a locker and a combination lock for it. If you forget your combination,​ we can look it up for you at the front desk too.

 +There'​s no such thing as a '​best'​ microcontroller. It all depends on what you want to do. Therefore, depending on your needs, one microcontroller might be more appropriate. For example, the fastest chips tend to use more power than the slowest ones. The boards with the most I/O pins are bigger (and usually cost more) than ones with fewer features. Below is a list of aspects to consider when choosing a microcontroller. For more information,​ click [[selection-guide|Here]]
