    Have a cool idea but don't know what to do with it? We'll work with you to turn a small-scale project or idea that you've been thinking about into a set of instructions and a kit of parts! We'll work together to come up with a good project, but think about things on the scale of DIY lightsabers and soda-bottle water-rocket photography (plus a one-year CSE subscription, shipping if you want it, a t-shirt, and everything listed above)
