About This Activity

Description

Ages: 13 to 18yrs (recommended - call to inquire)
Students will learn the fundamental structure of computer hardware. Whether a computer runs Windows, Mac, Linux, or other OS, all computers use the same hardware. This course will cover all the essential components of a computer system, their purpose and functions.
Additional non-essential parts will be discussed such as different cooling systems, graphics cards for gaming, and different hardware I/O.
Students will build a computer in class using our demo components and by the end of class, will have sufficient knowledge to build a basic computer outside of class. Additional class time may be scheduled if students are interested in custom computer design.

*Note: If online registration is closed or if the class is full, space may still be available! Please call the office to check (703) 993-9889.
