Modern society generates a lot of electronic waste and rather than simply discard all of this waste to landfills, why not try to recycle computers that are no longer functional? Here are some ideas on how to reuse old computer parts.
Learn Electronics by Taking It Apart
Letting kids learn about electronics by seeing how they are put together and function is a great way to learn.
Seeing how circuit boards, hard drives and other components fit together and finding out what each part does gets kids interested in electronics. Components from computers can also make great subjects for macro photography.
Be careful when handling equipment that may contain harmful substances such as Freon or old equipment that may contain vacuum tubes.
