At Reuseum Educational, we are committed to promoting sustainability and responsible resource use. One of the ways we do this is through our efforts to reuse and repurpose old electronic devices. Last year, we were able to reuse and repurpose over 50,000 devices, diverting them from landfills and finding new uses for them. One of the key ways we were able to reuse and repurpose so many devices was through our electronic recycling program. This program allows individuals and organizations to donate their old electronic devices to Reuseum, where they are processed and prepared for reuse or recycling. Our team […]
Participating in workshops through the Reuseum Educational, many people know the classes and events Reuseum puts up in order to support STEM education throughout the community, but little do people know the mountains of printers, TVs, computers, and more Reuseum gets every year. Through an intricate system of sorting, dismantling, and reusing, Reuseum recycles, on average, 250,000 pounds of e-waste every year! E-waste, or electronic waste, refers to discarded electronic devices that are no longer used or wanted. These devices can include computers, laptops, phones, tablets, televisions, and other electronic equipment. As technology continues to advance, the amount of e-waste […]

Its the time of the year where both your spooky and inventor side is revealed, working in tandem to create all manner of electronic oddities. Motors and pulleys for dancing skeletons, gauze bandages for an escaping mummy, or maybe even LED bulbs for the thousands of jack-o-lantern you have around the house. The possibilities are endless with the direct devices we have around the store, but what if you want a more wireless connection. Look no further then the ESP-WROOM-32; a microcontroller with built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth compatibility. Control the your outdoor lighting, tell the smoke generator when to […]
Cellphone contain miniature speakers, printers have motors, while stereos use all manner of electronics. Taking these old or broken devices apart unveils a treasure trove of electrical magic just waiting to be used. Create intercoms throughout the house or automated window blinds to keep the heat from the sun out. There are many possibilities for both innovation and automation when it comes to using older devices that no longer have a use. Speakers aren’t the only items in old phones that can be useful. Discovering that the vibration from phones is caused by a tiny motor could give you ideas […]
