This instructable came out of a project to teach a group of middle school students at RPI. Some of the work is available on the E-Waste Makerspace: http://e-wastetomakerspace.wikispaces.com/E-Waste+…

The purpose of this lesson was to:

Expose students to concepts of pollution, e-waste, re-use, botany, and experimentation.
Give students an understanding of basic electronics and to empower them to create things.
Get kids interested in STEM fields.
