Turning Your Trash to Treasure
One person’s trash is an Engineering classroom’s treasure! The Engineering program can use the following item donations:
Old, broken RC or motorized toys (we salvage the IR electronics)
Broken inkjet printers (we salvage the DC motors, fans, axles and gears)
One gallon HDPE milk jugs (for a chemical engineering project)
Snap Circuit sets (check us out on Twitter @PackerEngineers)
Drop off any items in the main office and an engineering student will come and pick them up!
