A new way to learn

You want to know more about how the world works. We do too. You want to learn the tools of inventing and the best way to design and test. You have a passion for hard projects. You love learning new skills. You like figuring out how to work with the edges of design like safety, cost, and regulations. At HackadayU, you’ll learn from Instructors who have experience working on the problems you want to know how to solve. Courses are offered pay-as-you-wish, with all proceeds donated to charity.
