Justa, Dan TakeItApart Life Skills- Other,
Other,
Science
Taking stuff apart is a whole lot of fun. Once you realize any and everything is basically just big kid legos, a whole new world is revealed. We dissect frogs and pigs in middle and high school to see how their insides work, why not do the same with electronics? Lets demystify the technology, and get rid of that "I am going to break it if I take it apart" stigma. We want to run a basic TIA workshop where we will walk students (or anyone really) through the dissection and then reassembly of an age appropriate electronic device. We will provide the devices to be taken apart We will provide the tools to take apart the devices with As the we walk students through the disassembly, we will discuss how the different components are made, what they do, and how they work.
