Can you make a clock without using an electric motor — maybe utilizing water to move the handles? Can you design a vehicle from spare parts that can navigate a little obstacle course? Maybe you can repurpose a fan from an old computer to power its sail? In this program, we will be taking apart old, broken machines — computers, DVD players, household devices — and figure out what’s inside them. Then we’ll use the pieces that are functional (as originally intended but also in new ways!) and make something new, creative and fun out of them. You know, maybe a remote control that pushes a lever that opens a drawer that starts a marble… grab your family’s broken things, and your imagination! (Old electronics only, no fluorescent bulbs or other items that can contain hazards).
