Let's Take Something Apart

One motto of the maker movement is "It ain't broke, take it apart and fix it." Another, often seen on T-shirts, is "I void warranties" (by taking the back off of things). In this workshop we will learn to and learn by taking common everyday objects apart. We'll strip them down carefully, learning how they work along the way and preserving the parts for who knows what next project. Objects we'll work on may include an ink jet printer, a computer keyboard, a watch or alarm clock, a hair dryer, blender, headphones, lamp, and camera. And so many more. We will keep a special eye out for usable components like motors, gears, switches, and the like.
