There was some chatter on the Artisan's Asylum Discuss mailing list
quite a while back about someone who was running art classes for kids
where they turned old circuit boards into art projects. At the time they
were looking for hardware donors. Not sure if they still need them.

(Unfortunately AA doesn't seem to have searchable archives, and seems to
go to some lengths to keep their mailman UI hidden. Some list info here:

Easy: open up the towers, stuff with loose cards, then recycle PCs. :-)
