Have an exciting project to share or a problem that you are trying to solve?

This is a general open thread to talk about what you're working on - or want to work on!

Feel free to share ideas, ask for help, or just fill us in on your cool project :)

Anything goes in terms of topics, just as long as it is STEM-related.

My side project is a small mesh networking radio that uses Bluetooth to link your smartphone to the radio, then communicates text messages and GPS info over the radio. This is a hobbyist creation but a good prototype for a specific application that I'm working on, and it's cool that it has a thriving (if small) online community, which means that it will be easier for to get something working :)

This radio is really handy if you are in an area where there is no cell service, or you don't want to use cell service for cost or security reasons.

Ofc, I have a bunch of main project stuff to do, so not exactly sure when I'll actually get this done!

This is so amazingly cool 🙏

Can I ask you questions about how you interface with the open source community? I do a lot of projects but I am always nervous about revealing I'm a woman.
