WANTED: Electronics for Primary School aged Tinkering

Location :MEDOWIE
Date : Fri Apr 26 16:27:27 2019

Description

I'd love all sorts of present and past technology but unfortunately I need them to take SOME of these apart.
I'm a Primary school teacher who teaches STEM- science, technology, engineering and maths. Part of my work with kids is to show them how computers and technologies work.

The kids take SOME of these apart, check out their mechanics, their drives, their wiring, the motherboards etc, make other electronic circuits, use them for art and lots of other things! They love this type of discovery and we never have enough resources tyo work with. I need to ALSO put in an appeal for older type small electrical and mechanical gear- toasters, small kitchen items, small chargers & devices, modems, players, anything with gears, weights, moving parts, for the kids to take apart and also compare technologies of today and yesteryear. Our unit this year is on past and present comparisons of these types of resources.
If you are willing to let me have as many as possible- I'd be very grateful.‚Äč
