We have been exploring tool dissection activity since the beginning of this month and getting ready for the Open Make: Tools tomorrow! Could you guess what we took apart?
The answer is … a hair dryer! What would you make out of these components after dissecting?
The process of dissecting is fun, but we are finding it is much more fun to re-purpose the parts that we took apart and to turn them into something new! For example…
Here is an earring made of a switch of the hair dryer. The left is a ring made of a gear of the hand drill.
Not only small parts, you can also use big parts of the tools.
For example, the plastic cover of the hand drill (the one that I took apart last week) became a headphone.
Join us this weekend for Open Make :Tools! An old typewriter, an old analog calculator, an old slide projector, hair dryers, hand drills, a binocular, irons (and many more!) are waiting to be dissected and given new purposes!
