  • GEEK-TO-YOU: How to take apart a hard-drive (humor included)

    One of our favorite DiscoverE.org projects for 9th-12th grades is "Reverse Engineering". The most popular items to Reverse Engineer are hard drives, by far! One thing we did was substitute a paint can opener for a flat blade screwdriver to pry off the labels and occasionally loosen the top when gaskets hold on tight! These paint can openers are far safer than flat blade screwdrivers for the students. Free with paint or US$0.25-$0.50 if bought at hardware store.
