We are looking for a few good items....and a lot of bad ones. Bring your old and outdated equipment, especially computer equipment. We're trying to build up a training lab of sorts and we're willing to do it from parts.
What we need:
Working computers, Not-quite working computers, LCD Monitors, Power strips, RAM, Hard drives (these will be DOD wiped before use), CD/DVD ROM drives, Cables, Cases, Folding Tables, Small Desks, Office Chairs, Video Cards, Laser printers, Ink-jet printers, Scanners, assorted other peripherals.
We'd also like shoeboxes and similar-sized sturdy cardboard boxes to store parts of things we disassemble.
PLEASE, NO CRT MONITORS JUST YET
As a special request, ask your employers about donating out-of-date hardware to the makerspace. Often companies will pay people to dispose of old electronics that we could make great use of.
This event will recur on at least a quarterly basis.
