An important part of our non-profit mission is to support and promote youth interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. One way we do that is through “Take Apart Night.” Most of today’s makers and tech savvy professionals remember getting their start taking apart mechanical or electronic equipment. While the success rate of putting these items back together in a working state might have been abysmally low (perhaps to the consternation of our elders) , this exercise in taking things apart stimulated curiosity into the inner workings of mechanical and electronic systems. Taking things apart is also lots of FUN!
Here’s to Constructive Destruction!!!
