Genius! Build Your Own Computer

”It’s mine, all mine!” That’s what you’ll be saying after taking this class. Learn to build a Personal Computer, from scratch. You can do it! This class is as much for someone who spends all day on a computer as it is for someone who only has a casual interest in electronics. No computer experience is necessary, and we will provide you with all the parts you need (brand new). Not only do you get to build the computer, but you will also install and configure the operating system while exploring various networking options such as port forwarding. The A+ certification requires knowledge of both hardware and software, and this course is a great way to establish a foundation for exploring those concepts. Best of all, at the end of the course, you get to take home your very own PC. Wow your friends as you surf the internet, play games, and write book reports, all on a machine you built!

Caution: This course may result in relatives turning to you for computer support!

Who will like this Course?

Build Your Own Computer is perfect for any kids or teens who want to dive beneath the surface of standard computer-user knowledge to master the arcane mysteries of both hardware and software.

 

Students ages 12 through 17 (7th Grade - 11th Grade)
