After trying to locate the owners, I have given up and have been loaning them out to students as needed. I want to something more nerd-worthy with them, though. I would feel wrong for selling them. What is the best use for bunch of old calculators?"

What to do with found calculators

  • Just last year while finishing up a math class, I needed a TI-83 style calculator, but could not afford one. I ended up mostly using gnu software calcs instead. Had someone loaned me one, I'd not have complained. There's nothing more nerd-worthy than helping people get by with their educations, IMO.

If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
