Wauconda Area Library 2018 "Wreck the Tech" Event
The Wauconda Area Library teamed up with POS Remarketing Group (POSRG) on March 22, 2018, for "Wreck the Tech," an event that allowed kids in grades 3–12 to get an inside look at everyday electronics.
This hands-on event allowed kids to pick out a piece of ordinary office equipment, take it apart, and learn about the internal components and how they work. The items included computers, laptops, printers, keyboards and phones, all of which were end-of-life equipment that POSRG donated and then recycled upon completion of the event.
“Wreck the Tech” was designed to educate and promote interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). POSRG looks forward to working with the Wauconda Area Library and extended community on similar events in the future.
