Raspberry pi zero projects for a beginner

Hello everyone, I was gifted a raspberry pi zero by my partner and we wanted to build a few projects on it.
Do you guys have any recommendations on useful projects we could build on it ?
For context,
I am a beginner in python (just now completing the python for every body course) and I have a strong mathematical background (given that this is my degree).

I am also already familiar with Linux (I have Ubuntu as my daily driver and Kali Linux on my vm to learn the basics of pen testing).

I am not interested in gaming or small robots, so I have already crossed out projects relating to those topics.
Rather, I would like to build something that improves my every day life (for example building a network-wide ad blocker).

Thus if you folks had any insight on useful beginner projects I would really like to hear your advice/suggestions!

Hey there @Beatrix !

Here’s an article I found from a Magazine dedicated to Rasbery Pi

Also, my family and I have built another project that’s also particularly useful, it’s a monitor that displays work info and calendar items for the entire family to stay on track. I can’t find the exact article since I’m short on time but here’s one that’s similar.

Setting up your own server.
Getting some free dns address like noip and setting up some pagers/apps.
Or creating your own box to crack, if you are into pentesting.

Many thanks! I will check these out!

Thank you, I will read into this too!
