    Favourite one was an A3 sized peice of ply, and the laptop stripped down so it hard the keyboard off, motherboard in plain view, processor, cdrom, hdd, tft etc all "separated" from the unit. Great thing to do with an old laptop that would otherwise be binned.
    Excellent idea... My mind's ticking away now!

    An entire classroom stuffed with blatantly IT-related posters might wind up looking a bit dull/intimidating, so it might be an idea to display something that is more subtly IT-related. Computer generated images of landscapes are good, or creatures/people/cartoon characters (scenes from recent CGI movies might work well).

    Agreed, will get some of the first classes (or even ones using the laptops etc) to make up some things for the walls too. I can get the first years at high school to make up some things too.

    Leco, thanks for the link. Will have a wee look and see if the school is willing to buy some.
    They just turned up for me months later. I didn't think I would get them either.

    Do they not want people to guess email addresses for their staff members?

    Had a word with my boss this morning, managed to obtain an old HP base unit (dc7700 I think) so that will be stripped down and somehow mounted on a piece of board for the wall.

    He's also given me a couple of old digital cameras to see if I can do something with them too :-)
