Description of DIY Computer Workshop
The DIY Computer Workshop is a one day event where students are walked through the entire process of how to build their own computer from the ground up and then take it home!
DIY Computer is a way for you to connect to computers, understand how they function and how to fix them. DIY helps you understand:
- structure and purpose of computer components
- computer operation control
- operating systems
- simple networking
- process of upgrading
Computers are integrated into every aspect of our modern technical culture. If your student is interested in a career of tomorrow then knowing how to maintenance computer hardware and do simple technical software management is a must. These skills can be simply learned in a period of just six hours on a weekend day.
For students wanting to move into advanced programming, there is no substitute for the programming environment of a linux distribution. Through the use of linux students will familiarize themselves with the underpinnings of our modern networking capabilities and the most advanced security methods available today.
