Reverse Engineering of a Common Product

Activity 5: Assembly and Collaboration

Obtain the disassembled components for the other device (not the one you previously took apart.) Review the reassembly instructions for this device that have been provided in by a different school. Your team should reassemble this product given ONLY the instructions provided. As a team, discuss the aspects of the directions that are unclear or incorrect and request additional information if necessary. When you are successful assembling the device, let the other school know! For the school that is assembling your device with the instructions you previously posted, provide additional clarification if requested.

The project concludes when:

  • You successfully assemble the new device based on another school's instructions and
  • A partner school successfully assembles your device based on the instructions that your class provided.
