Old Laptop / Phone / Hi-Fi / etc…?
Any old tech you have lying around in your tech graveyard box/drawer – DECONSTRUCT IT!
Grab a screwdriver or two and pull it to pieces* – try not to break anything – not to be precious about it but because it makes the deconstruction process more thourough and takes longer!
Layout all the components, screws, clips, etc and find out what they all are – google any codes on chips. Maybe some components** can be used with Arduinos or Microbits. Maybe some components can be further deconstructed!
Or you can use the bits to make sculptures, artworks or anything else you can think of!
*Please take care when deconstrucing things, there is always the possiblity of sharp edges and fragile components that can shatter/break.
**We don’t recommend using anything requiring mains power unless you really know what you’re doing! We are not responsible for you blowing yourself up!)
