There isn't a ComputerBank as far as I know in Canberra. However, talk to
the NSW ComputerBank or the Victorian one and see if they'll donate a few
machines to start your project off.

OF COURSE, the first task your students could actually "do" is buy the
hardware. You could find a friendly hardware sponsor who gives the students
some "funny money" which they get to plan what they can buy with.
