Engineering Flowchart

The original version of this image (featuring duct tape) has been floating around for a bit, I just updated for the 21st century. I gave a couple packs of Sugru to some of my engineering friends — one of them, after using it to repair a cracked outdoor fountain pump, said “this stuff is better than duct tape!”, and thus…

Pick up some Sugru in the shop!

I don’t know who made the original image. If you know, please post in the comments so that I can give them credit. Thanks!

UPDATE: Pete Prodoehl offers his own Adafruit-infused take on it — nice work, Pete!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I’m sorry, but while this flowchart seems useful, it can definitely be improved upon.

  2. I suggest you file this under Useful Stuff as well as Tools so it’s easier to find while browsing the store.

  3. It’s not accurate, there’s no hammer!
