Free Stuff from Great Scott Gadgets

Great Scott Gadgets is committed to supporting the open source community. One way we give back to the community is by giving away free stuff! For example, we have donated hundreds of Throwing Star LAN Tap Kits so that kids can learn to solder while learning about network security. We’ve also donated HackRF Ones, Ubertooth Ones, and prototype hardware to hackerspaces, research programs, and independent developers. You can read more about our previous free stuff recipients on our free stuff blog.

If you or your community organization would like free stuff from Great Scott Gadgets, please fill out our free stuff application to the best of your ability. Our team judges applications based on innovation, enthusiasm, and need so please add detail where you can!

We send out free stuff to one person or group per month, notify them by email when they are chosen, and write a blog post about them and what they plan to do with their Great Scott Gadgets free stuff. Please note that we do not send out regrets as we choose our monthly free stuff recipient(s) out of all applications received in the last twelve months. If you would like to update your application or have any questions, please email We look forward to your application!

Note: This program is focused on supporting communities. We send hardware out to people looking to spread education, support community projects, or contribute to open source projects or research. We are not interested in sending hardware out to companies or individuals for strictly personal use.

Note: Our Free Stuff program has refreshed as of January 2022. If you have submitted to free stuff prior to this date and would like to be considered for free stuff, please submit a new application.
