Make old new again
Give new life to old electronics equipment!
Let’s make the world a better place!
STEAM Centre’s re//BUILD.IT program believes in reuse before recycle. We take in a wide range of electronics equipment and do our very best to give it a new a purpose. If our staff, volunteers, and makers can’t reuse the equipment or parts, we ensure the materials are recycled properly! Want to donate? Call the Centre to arrange for a drop off time.
Every three months we offer re//BUILD.IT for Teens & Adults. Participants learn how computers work by taking them apart and putting them back together again! If the computers work when they are done, students can either take them home or donate them to a local community member or service. Limit: 1 PC per student per year.
To date, STEAM Centre has collected over 300,000 lbs. of electronic waste to be used in our education programs!
re//BUILD.IT – Computers
What is inside a computer? How does it go together? Learn how the mysterious black box that we use for everything from gaming to design to communicating with Friends works! Learn what the components make up a PC, and how to rebuild it to bring it back to life! You decide how many instructor-facilitated sessions you need to complete your PC. Most students take three sessions to complete their PC. Ages 10-17.
