Some people see a pile of broken junk. I see an educational opportunity! Some people might call it tearing stuff apart. I call it Reverse Engineering.
Learning By Destruction
A few months back, I shared our Reverse Engineering adventures. We invited a friend over to take apart stuff like a computer keyboard, a bathroom scale and a mixer. The kids got to see what makes those devices work.
That was not a one time deal. We actually look forward to blenders, cell phones and printers breaking. It’s so fun! You can read all about it and see why I encourage Reverse Engineering.

In the last Reverse Engineering post, I included a basic printable. I have created a new reverse engineering printable pack that encourages investigation and critical thinking. It is yours to download for FREE! Click the image below to download.
