Taking apart gadgets such as a travel alarm clock, disposable camera, headphones, propelling pencil or a TV remote control is a great way of exploring beneath the surface of objects. It encourages students to question and find out how something works, and how it was made.

NOTE: If you are running this activity with younger children, please supervise them, as some items will contain small parts or sharp points.
