Junior STEAM - Deconstruction

As part of junior STEAM (Science, Technology, Arts, and Maths) at Auroa School, I take a group for 'Deconstruction'. The children use screwdrivers and other tools to open broken appliances, and see what's inside. Look how involved they all are! So far they have pulled apart fax machines, cd players, and a toasted sandwich maker. They have been asking lots of great questions about how things work and coming up with some great theories. We've even done some online research when sometimes I didn't know.  We'd love some more broken appliances (with the cords cut off) if you have any at home. Things with moving parts inside are interesting.
