Sure, I found this definition online.Reverse engineering is taking apart an object to see how it works in order to duplicate or enhance the object. The practice, taken from older industries, is now frequently used on computer hardware and software.
We worked on your idea today in NYC. We liked the idea of a mobile truck. A basic summary is to make community connections- schools, community centers, churches, use reusable trash, think of "reverse engineering" I.e. deconstructing old tech that isn't recycled. Use volunteers from engineering uni programs and professionals. One member thought an app that could locate the truck and also record points for completed activities, linking with other makers etc. Would also help and encourage youths.
